My name is David and my wife and I are in our first year of kayaking. We've lived in Texas for ten years but we still claim Oregon as our home. We will never be extreme kayakers but so far we've paddled on 4 different rivers with Class I & II rapids and been on several flat water trips. I can honestly say that we are absolutely hooked on kayaking! We're already in the market for two new boats. We started out at the low end with two Sun Dolphin Aruba 10's and are now in the market for the Dagger Axis 10.5's. We would appreciate any advice or input you all have. Glad to be part of Kayak Crazy!!

Welcome Aboard.
Wilma and I are not into Extreme either. We get into a little Mild White Water now and again. We just enjoy a nice quiet day on the river. We normally go on week days to pretty much have the river to our selves.
We started out with a couple Asend D10 set ins to start with. We then moved up to a pair of Perception Tribe 9.5's, and a little later we moved to the longer Perception Tribe 11.5's. We went shorter to start with so the wife could haul her kayak to horse camp with all her other gear. The 11.5's see a lot more use when we are on the river just floating. I have seen some other brands of kayaks I like, but they are very close to the 11.5 Tribe. For what we do, I like the Tribes very much.
