Changing into trunks and walking into the hot, humid pool area doesn’t kick off any of the adrenalin I normally feel while teaching. That doesn’t hit until after Carl’s intro when my focus crystallizes on the task ahead. Someone is pushing their limits today and I get to be part of that. This is way too much fun.

A long and busy 09' season followed by the holiday hubbub left Carl and I drained and ready for some quality downtime so, we hunkered down in LC for some well deserved R&R. We have dubbed 2010 the year of the seal since, most days have included stand up paddle trips around Sakonnet to play with our sea dog buddies & cruise the coastline. We've also had some good sleddin', plenty of beach walks, and a couple of good ole fashion brush burnin' parties. The Ladd residence is getting some overdue maintenance and TLC that should keep us busy through the rest of the winter.
Groundhogs Day is the signal for us too to crawl out of our winter den. Unlike Phil, we have to get going now to create another year of paddling adventures and good vibes. February kicks off our 2010 season with Pool classes scheduled every Sunday afternoon in Providence. Be on the look out for The Rhode Island Surf Kayak (RISK) Session to happen on one weekend this month. We'll keep info posted on our website and you can also check out www.kayaksurfers.com as wave forecasts will determine the specific day of the event. Even if your not a surfer this is a great event to watch from the beach. This years RISK session will be at South Shore beach in LC. Hope to see y'all there!
