G'day, New Paddler - Brisbane Region!

4 months 3 weeks ago #35166 by Crab Stick
Greetings folks!

Apart from some limited experience as a youth, I'm brand spanking new to Paddling. I've just purchased a Surf Ski 2nd Hand - my budget was meager - but I think for the money it will be sufficient for a start up. The Ski is likely so old nobody has heard of it ... CHD (Cory Hutchings Designs) Sonic Ocean Style - NZ  - Carbon Hull and Honeycomb Lid. I'm currently getting roof racks and accessories together, have yet to buy a Paddle --- these are more expensive than my Boat!

Looking to connect with other Paddlers in my area - or those willing to help or share knowledge. If there are any locals happy to kick skegs and have a chat, shoot me a line. Advice on best places to buy gear etc would be appreciated also.

Best, CS ;-)

Yeesh ... tough room to get a welcome in? Do I need more soap? ... Should I ask some specific questions? :-)

Hi Crab Stick,

We generally paddle on a Saturday morning out of Bulimba (end of Quay St app the Golf Course).  You're welcome to join in.  Might see you tomorrow.

Cheers Cracker!

Would love to join you guys ... I'm a rank beginner, not sure how I would fit in with your group - I would like to make contact with other paddlers but wouldn't want to slow the group down.  What time do you meet - put in etc? I've got my transport and a paddle sorted - now I just need time in the seat and some words of advice.

No worries Crab Stick, we normally meet at 6am on Saturdays.  Should be a good place to start and get you on the water.
