76 | 76 | A Kayak Addict's 12-Step Recovery Program BY FRED GARTH Hi, my name is Fred and I'm a kayakaholic. My addiction began when I was young and naive with a small, sit-on-top, yellow yak. It all seemed innocent enough back then. I was just a recreational user. I was in control. At least that's what I kept telling myself. Not even my family or close friends suspected the depth of my addiction. When they finally started asking questions, I hid it from them. I'd sneak out at night to fish the dock lights when everyone was asleep. I was in serious denial. Then, I flew off the edge—plunged bow-first over a waterfall (not literally). The culprit was my introduction to a much more powerful substance—the pedal kayak. Not only did I feel a new kind of spiritual freedom, but it had a comfortable seat that prevented back pain and enveloped my fat tush like a giant marshmallow. Plus, I could stand erect like other advanced primates. For the sake of my reader's own well-being, I will reveal the culprit that sucked me in. It's the Hobie Pro Angler 14. And after my first try, I was hopelessly hooked. I had to have it. The author peddling home after a fishing trip.
