Let me tell you about my first ever kayak trip.
Because many many years ago, and my friend was having his birthday party. We were out in the country near a river and then I spotted a little cottage a few hundred meters away. The party was starting in a few hours so I decided to go check out the house by the river.
To my surprise, it turned out to be a kayak rental. Since we had a few hours to go, I decided to give it to try. The manager gave me a life vest, a paddle and just told me to go grab a kayak off the bridge.
I strapped on my vest and decided to go give it a try. I jumped in the kayak and started paddling hysterically, up the river. The river turned me around and my journey began..
I kind of panicked and there was nothing I could do about it. 10 minutes later I got to the checkpoint and owner greeted me.
The next morning I got proper training and that's where my love for kayaks started.
Ever since that I've gone kayaking as often as I could and now have over three kayaks. One regular and two tandem kayaks :)
Let me know if you've ever been kayaking and how your first time went.
