My first post hereDSCN2928



Just a bit about myself first.

Known as GuyThaLizard (Guy Hoffman) also known as KAYAKokanagan on Twitter. I am a kayaking and outdoor enthusiast who loves to photograph, videograph and blog my adventures I am living in the South Okanagan Valley of  British Columbia, Canada, in an area known as a desert. I blog about my kayaking trips on my main blog called www.KAYAKokanagan.com my videos are on YouTube on my video channel GuyThaLizardVIDEOS http://www.youtube.com/guythalizardvideos . I have been kayaking since 2007 I have always loved the water growing up I started off canoeing then once I purchased my 1st kayak, a SOT (Sit-On-Top) I was hooked on kayaking. I went from the SOT to a SIK (Sit-In-Kayak) an OldTown VieII tandem that I used for my kayaking trips. I would paddle solo from the back and load all my gear in the front seat and cockpit. From there I went to a Wilderness Systems Tsunami 145 with a rudder. My paddle partner and significant other is Kathy McA, who I spend most of my kayaking adventures with. These images are from Johnson Lake near Kamloops BC Canada. The water was amazingly clear there and you can see the fish swimming on the bottom of the lake. Many liken this lake to the Caribbean. It is a beautiful lake to explore.

To start I wanted to share some of my videos.
