Guess what? i went kayaking

So pretty much the only thing that is worth noting, as always, is what i've been doing on the weekends which is pretty much just kayaking. not "just kayaking", KAYAKING!!! yay! but anyways, i'm just working 40 hours a week and doing Krav Maga after work for three of those days so i'm really not doing much extra exciting stuff.

First of all i tried to teach a couple people to roll in a kayak (in a pool) on friday, which was fun and gratifying when they were able to roll up on their own. but not consistently enough in my opinion so i'm not much of a teacher. though i did read up so i might be better now, but don't count on it.

The recent time i went kayaking (this recent saturday)was with the Kerr family and whoever they invited (a good amount of vehwigs (i used to be able to spell their name, probably wrong now) on rafts. i was with Brother Kerr and Garrett in kayaks and it was way fun because i finally let out and really tried to play around in the river (previously i had been to cautious to do anything other than go straight down) I was able to do a little surfing which actually felt AMAZING, so fun/cool. so i had a blast. i didn't get any pictures however, but i will post some from a previous trip that i haven't put on my blog yet. (which explains me still in a wetsuit and with my goggles i don't use anymore)

i actually don't like this picture

SAM DOUGLASS!!! and me

Someone seal launching (in a kayak) off of that large rock - you can see their yellow paddle above their large splash

A totally different trip than described/in the rest of the pictures. That's me Guiding a three-man raft with Adam and Aaron Purcell. it was way fun (like the 90's oakleys? i use them for kayaking too!)

a nice view down the "mighty main"
