The Jacksonville Kayaking Meetup Group

The Jacksonville Kayaking Meetup Group

Jacksonville, FL

My first experience with the web site www.meetup.com began 3 years ago in Charleston, SC. At the time, I was working for Epic Kayaks, a kayak and paddle manufacturing company, Nature Adventure Outfitters as a kayak guide, and Charleston County Parks and Recreation as a part time kayak guide/ACA instructor . I had moved to Charleston from Brevard, NC, where I had attended college. At the time I was in search for a community of people in Charleston that shared the same interest as me, kayaking. A local paddling shop by the name of Sea Kayak Carolina, had began “The Charleston Sea Kayaking Meetup Group”  I had the opportunity to watch this  group grow from 0 members to over 3oo members in the first year! They had essentially created a community of paddlers! I had finally found a group of people to go paddling with that I could learn from and share experiences with. This concept was amazing to me. The next year I decide to leave Charleston in search of somewhere to form a business, start a family, and life for myself. After months of researching I choose Jacksonville, FL to be my new home.

The reason I chose Jacksonville, FL was because it was surrounded by water, the Eco-Tourism market was in its infancy, and opportunities were endless with Jacksonville having the most land devoted to the parks out of any city in the USA.

The Meetup group has given me and almost 300 local paddlers the opportunity to connect, and create our own community of kayakers. It’s a place where people who already have there own kayaks and equipment have the opportunity to plan local and statewide adventures. Our organizers and members are what make it a success. First Coast Outfitters offers rental equipment for many of the trips.
