  Solo
  Posted by: old_user on Apr-04-10 9:08 PM (EST)
 

Kathy, I was paddling solo soon after buying a kayak. It was on one solo fishing trip the tide and wind turned on me and on reaching shore, I vowed to get professional lessons.

This is the kind of thing where if you have to ask, you're not ready most likely. Then again, if your partners have to rescue and can't they might as well be on Mars. Paddling is kind of solo all the time. Except when it's not of course. Learn to swim, then never swim unless you want to. : ) also, in my case, I was not ready to be where I was alone, but I was too dumb to know it. When you are self sufficient you will know, but instruction will let you know the criteria to judge by and let you prove to yourself first hand that you have the skills and knowledge and judgment. It does not matter if others jump off a cliff, they are not you.
