Hello. My name is Gareth and I live in Newport Beach, California. I've been on "sabbatical" from paddling for several years while raising kids, and hope to start up again in the not too distant future. I have a number of folding kayaks (see signature line below). As you can see, I am partial to Feathercraft. I've done crossings from the mainland to Anacapa and Santa Cruz Islands in my K1 and a couple of Catalina Island circumnavigations in my K2. I've also owned hardshells (NDK Explorer was my favorite), but I love the performance characteristics of skin on frame folding kayaks.

Welcome Gareth, nice to have another folder paddler on board. Looks like quite of fleet, sounds like you have all the options covered for your neck of the woods. Have to ventured beyond SoCal?

Thanks, g. My paddling has been limited to SoCal, with the exception of an afternoon in a rental double with my wife in Monterey, NorCal. Plenty of great paddling around here, and I'm into folding kayaks more because of the paddling experience in them than the fact that you can travel with them (though it's also handy to be able to break them down and store them compactly compared to a hardshell)!
