Hi @Mamasanderson - Thanks for reaching out! It's so fun to hear that you're interested in getting into more outdoor activities. You might find some valuable information on paddleboarding and kayaking on our Watersports board. That is a great place to ask any questions that you have, as well as share your own stories and learnings! There are also Cycling, Running, and Fitness boards, where you will have the chance to share your expertise with others.

If you're willing to share, what area are you in? That might make it easier for other community members to connect with you here. We might also be able to help you find groups doing outdoor activities in your local area!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
