Last year my wife and I decided that we would like to try kayaking so we bought a couple of boats. We didn't get them until late in the season and due to weather and schedule conflicts only went out a couple of times on some local ponds. This year I hope to use them more and to enjoy them to their full potential. We live along the shore but both of us agree that we are not proficient enough to paddle on anything but protected waters like lakes and ponds. I would like to get some type of formal instruction but I don't know where to go for it. If anyone could tell me of a website or something where I can get some info on lessons or classes I would really appreciate it.
