COMMENTS: I’ve been paddling about 1.5 years. I have more bow experience, but I am willing to go stern. Willing and able to travel for training. Would prefer someone with marathon experience, but I’m not against a fellow newbie. Leave a voicemail if you call, I get too many telemarketers so I rarely answer unless I know who is calling. Text is better.

PHONE/CELL: 5173483348
E-MAIL: joekordenbrock@gmail.com

LOOKING FOR: C2 canoe/advice
COMMENTS: My good friend and I have been canoeing all our lives and are looking to break into the competitive aspect of it. I was hoping to find someone who would either rent us their c2 or have a sense of direction for where we could go to get one. As we are poor college students spending $4000 on a jd pro 2 isn’t an option for us.
