Reading and sharing paddler’s stories is something we love to do, and when we came across this story from Wes Turner on our Google+ Kayaking Community we thought it was a great opportunity to share some insights for first time paddlers. Wes had recently found a great deal on a very old Wilderness Systems Pamlico 145T Tandem Kayak and decided to take it out with his wife for their maiden voyage despite some high river conditions, strong flow and cold winter water.
Do you remember the first time you launched a kayak? There was that feeling of nervous excitement eventually turned euphoric when you subconsciously gained control of your boat, your body relaxed and before you knew, all of your life’s worries were left behind.
