Can't really tell, but the waves we were surfing that day were from a tropical storm right offshore... We had a fire/rescue helicopter come down cause some tourists called 911 on us. Apparently, they thought surfing 10-15 ft sets were dangerous

And yeah, those outriggers take awhile to get used to. I used to hit them all the time.

Always wanted to kayak down some rapids...

Guess I'll throw in here too. 2 12' Wilderness systems tarpons. Have j racks to fit on the car but much prefer to haul them on the truck with the Thule xsporter which also does longboards, or lumber or 450 lbs of whatever you may put up there. Pic is on 05 access cab but will ride the same on the 08 reg cab. This is from March......

I would like to transport mine that way on top of my car but I am a little concerned about how the wind will whip it across the lanes. It already drifts with some light wind. I know there are going to be times I have to haul more than one.

The wife and I in our kayaks. We have an old Cobra XL and a Perception Sound. Both have been rigged with fishing rods and paddling accouterments.

Village Creek State Park, north of Beaumont by Lumberton & Silsbee area off hwy 69. It flows into the Neches River. There is a lot of paddling there. We covered a small amount of what's there. Cool off the beaten path place.

Was this Armand Bayou Nature area perhaps? Or Clear Creek? I used to live in Clear Lake area and Armand Bayou was 5 minutes away. Was our home yakin spot until moving out west. Now, I guess Oyster Creek in the Sugar Land area would be it. Not nearly as cool of a place but beats making circles in the small lakes in the neighborhood.

Awesome picture I'm a whitewater boater myself. I paddle a Pyranha burn and a wave sport project 52. That picture looks like great falls to me. I live in Richmond VA so I'm on the James pretty much every week with a few trips to West VA here and there.

Armand Bayou is right. Specifically Big Island Slough, but it's all the same.

The best river in this area is the Buffalo River. I've done several multi-day trips in this kayak on the river. Its a great floating kayak.



Some nice Buffalo River scenery:

I'm going to have to pick your brain about this float...been hearing alot of great things about this river and I want to try it out for myself next spring.

I've got a 10.5' Future Beach Trophy 126 kayak myself, the college I go to has a great equipment rental program and I rent a 12 ft perception for my 6'5" brother in law. We've done multi day kayak trips on several rivers in the past couple years and many one day trips on lakes and love it! We live in such a great area for kayaking and river fishing, enough options from 15 minutes to a couple hours away that will keep us busy for years.

Here's some shots from a float we did in April on the Big South Fork.

Okay, I'll play. Wife's Old Town is on the left, my Current Designs is on the right. We go almost every weekend. Nothing is more relaxing than a having a beer while silently gliding across a mirror still lake looking down into the sunset.

Oh yeah, forgot about the docks they built off red bluff where that crosses under. Those were just built before we moved. Did y'all launch from there or Bayland park on bay area? We always just used bayland park so we could go south towards the lake and up in horsepen bayou or north to big island slough or up armand to bay oaks country club almost to genoa-red bluff. Bay oaks is gone and looks to be becoming apartments now.

Thanks! The Buffalo is a great river.

For the front dry storage, I usually fit a 2-person tent, a twin size air mattress, a shoebox size plastic container (for misc. stuff) and a there is usually space left for a few other small items. (bag of jerky, can of Pringles, and extra hat). The Tarpon 120 will hold a full size cooler, then I have a dry bag behind that with my sleeping bag and clothes. The Tarpon has a small access hole right between my legs where I can stash extra food, camera, or whatever else. Its a great cruising kayak.

Ask away! I've only floated about 60% of the river, but all the really scenic parts. The river level and how many nights you want to camp will be a deciding factor of what section to float.
