    I am looking to get into whitewater kayaking. I will be floating Bull Creek and Swan Creek when they are floatable and the northern Arkansas creeks and rivers. I need some advice on what kind of kayak to buy. I dont know the lingo all that well and am confused if i should be looking into creeker kayaks or not. I’m 5’11 155lbs any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Jimmy

    Hi Jimmy, Welcome to the club.  Check out the “instruction” tabe above and you’ll see we have a beginner/intermediate WW kayak clinic April 21 and 22.  It’s great time to get started.  Sign up and post here to ask if someone could loan you some gear.  You might also check out the St. Louis Canoe and Kayak Club. They have a website and FB page.  That group also has a lot of  very knowledgeable and experienced WW kayakers.  They will have LOTS of advice about what you might need in a boat.  good luck,

    Dave Dickson
