I want to work for it.

Celia, I guess I'm a bit different because I'm excited to put the time in and practice this stuff, we both are. I intended on using shalow water to learn but I like the idea of basically learning the limits of what you can get away with crawling around on the boat. I think its initially letting your control muscles learn to balance the boat without thinking about it, like riding a bike. Then, exploring the limits of what will tip it over. Then the same on climbing back in. I expect to dump the boat very often from the start.
Really, for me, the work and energy that I'll have to do to gain this skill will burn some of this extra fat off of me, so I'm all for it! Currently 5'8 and 220lbs.
I want to go get one of the boats right now and put it in my garage so I can play with it now! All good information guys, thank you.
