Re: Frog Bayou - New Kayaker Safe Level Recommendation

My first/only river run was on the Frog from cemetery bridge down to Rudy at "3" 'ish. It was a riot. Not too challenging, or technical at all, but just enough to test my "Ford found" skills and take me to the next level. Some fantastic little surfing spots, some good 'talking' stretches, and a lot ...

Email me know if any type of tour of this dam/creek is planned in the near future. I wouldn't mind becoming more educated about it.

Re: What's the Coldest Weather you Paddled?

Cory, This will make you feel better. :grin: 50+ degrees here with water I'm guessing in high 40's. Testing equipment/drysuit. Hit every roll, came up screaming each time. :D Realized I need better 'base' layer gear if I plan to drop into water/air 10 degrees cooler. This is my first year [2014] pad...

Re: Heated pogies

Sorry to but in, but what are some good 'kayaking gloves' you guys might recommend?? I've got pogies, but just needed that little extra layer, plus like the knuckle protection. I tried an NRS set of "paddling gloves" but they were so slick, the paddle would 'spin' in my hands if I didn't hold the pa...

FIRST TRIP!!

What a great day. Today was my first downriver run. The Frog [Lancaster to Rudy] with a really great group of people. All that training at the Ford finally paid off. :grin: FrogRunGroupWithNames.jpg SurfinDaFrog.jpg Thanks to the ACC and all my kayaking friends. Can't wait for my next run!

Re: Ford Status 10/14

I do NOT know the status today, but the gate was locked ALL weekend. There were flash flood warnings much of the weekend, so I assume that is part of their criteria for deciding. They pull the porta-potties and lock the gate during flood warnings I've noticed. Quite a few boaters & spectators parked...
