As you know there is a massive pile of paddling resources out on the net. It seems everybody and their brother has a kayaking newsgroup. I saw the more the merrier.

Some of these resources are good while others don't seem to be as active. One group that I have been a part of for a while is the Yahoo Group, Seakayak Skill Building, WA.

It is a group of paddlers who are focusing on helping each other work their way up through the various certification programs. They organize practice sessions and anybody is allowed up come out and paddle.

I have been watching the newsgroup postings for a while but recently a good conversation has started up around potential dangers in drop seat zippers in dry suits. "setsuko_cox" is interested in collecting stories or experiences of other people who have got their zippers caught when trying to wet exit. If you want to follow along with the conversation or chime in, you will need to join the free group.
