Whitewater kayaking

Somewhere around 2010 I also decided to expand my horizons and take up whitewater kayaking.  A little bit late in life, maybe, but I always wanted to do whitewater in a kayak because when I was younger and did Class III-IV whitewater in a raft I thought the kayak guys were having more fun.

So I picked up a used playboat, a Necky Jive, on ebay and took rolling classes at the University of Virginia to learn how to roll.

Here I was a couple months later when I went back to the pool to practice my new skills, including my first successful attempt at the back deck roll.
