Beginning 6/26/12, California Canoe and Kayak at Oakland's Jack London Square is kicking off it's summer series of Tuesday Kayak Fishing and Sailing Clinics hosted by yours truly.  It'll be an excellent opportunity for us to meet in a casual shop environment to address topics of interest for Hobie owners and those considering a Hobie paddle, pedal, or sailing kayak.  The free Tuesday Night Clinics will run from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.  I plan to have a different agenda for every clinic, but we'll start by meeting and greeting newcomers addressing the kayak fishing basics and any questions they may have.

Here is a sample of the topics with hope to cover in this series:

*  How to sail and fish from a Hobie Adventure Island or Tandem Island
*  Rigging Your Hobie for Fishing and Tackle Tips
*  Caring and Transporting your Hobie
*  Hobie Upgrades, Tech Tips, Mods, and Tune-ups

Tuesday afternoons (before the clinic) will also be an opportunity to demo any Hobie kayak on the dock, including the Hobie Adventure Island or Tandem Island at no-charge.  CCK usually charges a fee (refundable with kayak purchase) to set-up and demo their Hobie Island sailing kayaks.

Let's add to the fun by making this a potluck.  So please bring whatever food or drinks you'd like to share!

Got any DIY kayak rigging, fish finder set-ups, homemade rod holders, fishing tackle, or anything you wanna share with the group, please bring it.  The helpful sharing of knowledge, along with the "show & tell" format of these clinics is the fun part!

Have any friends new to the sport?   Please do them a favor and invite them to meet and learn from the group.

If you plan to attend, please post here or PM me so I can get a headcount.  Also, please let me know which topics you want me to cover for this Tuesday and for future clinics.

All NCKA'ers (and non-members) are welcome whether you own a Hobie or not.  The more-the-merrier for this weekly NCKA style hook-up.  I hope to see ya there!

Yep, CCK gave me the best deal when I got my new Revo last month.  I even traded a Werner paddle over the Hobie paddle.
I have bought 2 boats there.

Dang Chuck, how do find the time?  Cck is a super cool place with a lot of good gear.  They stayed open late for me one time when I needed a wetsuit for the next morning.  Good people in my book.  Sounds like a fun event, I want a hobie :smt010
