Hi folks, I'm working in Houston, Texas but one day will be returning to Melbourne. I've been messing about in small boats since ever, and paddling sea kayaks since 2011. I'm a member of HASK (Houston Assoc. of Sea Kayakers). Apart from the Texas coast / lakes / bayous, I have been lucky enough to paddle in the San Juan Islands (Pacific North West) and Tybee Island (Georgia).
Between us, Sandra and I share a fleet which includes a big tandem, a bunch of plastic and glass singles, and a short surf ski. Rack space limits kayak numbers, although I did hang one from the rafters, which was consistent with "no kayaks on the garage floor or on the grass".
I've been doing formal kayak training to improve skills, not to collect qualifications, but currently have BCU 3-Star, and ACA Instructor and trip leader tickets.
