The awesome Denton life guard / kayak cross training event?

Its just one of the reason Monicas programs and guards continue to garner awards and such from the pool industry.

And a reason why we also need volunteers for water supprt too.

Did we talk about the 2 saves we had a week back at Lake Tawakoni!!!

If your a certified Life Guard or want to become one and you also enjoy paddling

Please call us at 214 669 1663

THANKS!!!

3rd time a charm

May 12, 2017 by mike swope

Well ……Yes if your hanging with HATs!!!

And we we say hanging…we mean upside down in a kayak learnig the proper wet exit skills necessary to be a complete paddker….

Another wer success story!..and speaking of success.  The theme was balance and

I think we found it this time too….

Way yo girls….the Texas 2 step from kayaks

IMPRESSIVE!!!!!!!

Ans speaking of  impressive….check out the impressive dayghters and Dads!

And besides the smiling faces and good times…we also had our very own hunger games….we like to call it the kayak relay race….


Its mot just about learning balance and other important kayaking skills….its about teamwork and beating the other guys so bad it makes your double stuff oreos taste even sweeter!!!

*just a note 2nd place gets red velvet oreos too…so no one really loses!!!

Its all about the fun!

Yhanks too to the great me tors and camp director for letting us share the water and the great weather too!

2 words for you to remember….

              HATS ROCKS!!!!!

Hats friends for weekend #2! A big shout out to Jeff Kurt Don and all the Hats mentors too for making it a great event!

Also thanks to mother for being 25 degrees warmer too…no about that wind…can you say “North Sea”…..yup two weeks in a row…hopefully i can get the video working and you can see what we had the pleasure of…..

And before you troll Don this was a photo inbetween the 20 ab crunches…yes you can do the plyometrics workout  from your inflatable kayak!!!

Ultra hi performance racing shell…no problem for Kurt!!

But the real fun was Dad and Daughter time……o yes we got that both off and on

The water!!!

And yes it does look calm but we had paddle to the wind lee side of the lake…..

Trust me the the wind was blowing…but we cought a break..the front hit Glen Rose and the wind aided us back to shore!!!!

Woo Hoo…and once back we started thw wet work…..no not secret govermwnt stuff…learning how to exit a skirted kayak.

Both Dads and Daughters!

You can check out all the great photos and videos at this link too.

From all of us at KPC…..THANKS!!!!

Its not called low adventure for a reason!

April 24, 2017 by mike swope

Its High Adventure. Treks with Dad’s and 

outstanding in her kayak Daughters!!!!

The high adventure…well…its not just the kayaking…its the late April cold front that took us 20 degreea down in temp…

And its not the 15 mph wind ….its those darn 35 mph wind gust that make it

High Adventure

Its starts to sink in (pardon my pun) when we start fitting the kayaks to the kayakers that the reality of yes were kayaking in these conditions and that you realise exactly what the word HAT’s stands for!

In our terms it a yo yo training….simply put we start off nice and spread out…

But mr wind starts doing his thing and we wnd up very quickly looking not so spread out….

But hey …its Saturday…im kayaking with my Dad and or Daughter…so im having tons o fun!

Check out that smile…awesome!

A big shout out to our team mentors along with our steely eyed camp director too!

Both on and off the water!

So check out the pics

You see some Dads can just really ROCkthe pink land or sea!

Check back for the photo links and mostly

From Karen and Grace and Michael and Steve we thank all y”all  for paddling with

       K A Y A K P O W E R . C O M!!!!!!!

They wanted some one that could kayak in the dark…..

Well not completely in the dark…come on ths is TV!  And our new friend above in the Necky. Grant Johnston from the network as their A team weatherman.

And we checked in with the Studio 4 times from 6 am to 7am. Heck they shot from the ground….from the Game Wardens boat even from chopper 5 too!

The Trinity River folks showed up and when they they say light…they mean light!

A BIG thanks to Grant for confirming  what I have suspected for a long time…

All Great weathermen love to paddle!!!

2017 second Saturday

January 14, 2017 by mike swope

As we started the yrars 1st cleanup we knew we had some issues confronting us…but just like last year…we find a way to adapt to improvise and to over come!

The trash that is…it was not the way i like to start the yrar…sadly the lake was trashed.

Happilly we deployed both a ground crew

Along with a water surface group too

Being the only AAS group from the FTLOTL group that has multible cleaning strategies and the volunteers to put “our kayaks and boots on time and on target”

We dont just talk trash….we get trashed!

So take this in a little….its overcast high humidity and windy with a air temp of 41 degrees. The wind is blowing from a ling fetch from the northwest and across the water makes it feel colder and wetter too.

We had one young one..Thanks Rider

And we still had 15 hardy soles shoe up

And get the job done….


Please notice the shorts…Jason Rocks!!


if there were not still at least another metric ton of garbage I would say

           Misson Accomplished! 

So if you were feeling cold wet on the outside but warm and fuzzy on the inside

Check and see if you were one of the hardy folks hanging with KPC!!!!!

Thanks to all our Volunteers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
