Andy Hight commented on Christa Pedersen's blog post Anyone want to share a private roll lesson with Dan Crandall?
"That's what I want to do next weekend (Labor day)! Why wait til Thursday Sept 10? Why not do it one day Sept 5-7? I really want to (at least start to) get my roll down before I start to do more river kayaking on my own. So far I've always…"

"And, Dan Crandall, the owner, is an incredible supporter of the sport. He also owns the River Store, and runs the incredible River Shuttle service. Huge assets to the community. And supports this site! I don't know when he sleeps."

Christa Pedersen replied to Kevin Clay's discussion New to kayaking. Looking for paddelers in NorCal
"Kevin, I highly suggest you call Current Adventures in Lotus and see if you take their RK2 class without needing to take RK1 since you have experience. They'll supply a river running kayak and you will love the experience of kayaking…"

"I bought the DVD Whitewater Kayaking for Women, Girls at Play and found it to be excellent. It's a great tool to view before going paddling and afterwards to post mortem my trip (a.k.a. swims) :-)"

Current Adventures

I'd like to give a plug to Current Adventures for an excellent experience. They were recommended to me by a friend who told me taking RK1 and RK2 would get me to the point where I could paddle confidently with his club and he was right. Alex and Jason taught me some great skills, and I was surprised how quickly we progressed. I plan on taking RK2 and RK3 with them next season, and will try to hone the skills I can remember the rest of this season. They are very good at getting the best out of…See More

Anyone want to share a private roll lesson with Dan Crandall?

I'm thinking of driving up to Lotus Thursday Sept 10 for a morning roll class and then running 1/2 of C to G. Anyone care to join me? ( I'll pay for gas if you drive, I don't have a rack yet and usually put my kayak in my car) Christa Pedersen

My Paddling Life

When it comes to kayaking, it's something I've wanted to try since I lived in Sydney, Australia. But my ex-husband and I took a train trip across Australia and I came back with a little extra baggage, our beautiful daughter Erika. Now that I've finally tried it, I do love and enjoy it.

The river is my analogy for life, and paddling it heightens my experience of it and teaches me how to enjoy the good, the bad and the ugly. Mostly it's all beautiful. There's always more to learn.

I've met a lot of great people and made some new friends, an added bonus to the thrills and chills!!

Apart from kayaking I also enjoy traveling, watching movies, playing tennis and going to live music venues and comedy clubs.

I usually paddle with Loma Prieta Paddlers, or Gold Country Paddlers. I am lucky enough to be able to come up midweek sometimes. Invitations are appreciated, as are roll lessons :-) (still working on my combat roll). I could use a good T rescue person to practice combat rolls with. You may find me at Moffett or Richmond Pool on a Tuesday night at pool practice. If you share any of my interests, please drop me a line and/or introduce yourself so we can be friends.
