In Response To: Swimming skills ()

I don't swim. I also don't get near a kayak without my PFD. I think people who are comfortable in and under the water have an advantage learning skills like wet exits and rolling. But it certainly is not a prerequisite.

Kayaking had provided me an excuse to play in the water, wearing my PFD, and not look silly.
