Scuba diving and kayaking are two in a growing list of sports that physically impaired participants are discovering they can enjoy to the same extent as their more able-bodied counterparts. Skydiving, hang-gliding, sailing, and others add to this list. Someone who hasn't thought about it too much might think, "Wait a minute, most of these are considered extreme sports!" True, but most require more technical ability than physical prowess, and, because they put so much of the real world right in the face of the participant, these sports are a natural for many physically challenged outdoors adventurers.

In this web site, I present my own inventions and print some notes from some of the phone and eMail conversations I have had pertaining to diving and kayaking for the physically challenged adventurer.

Just in case I haven't made it clear somewhere else...
I invite you to make free use of the material presented in this site, in particular to reproduce, with or without your own modifications, any of the fixtures and adaptations presented here for your own use. All I ask is for you to share pictures and stories of your success with me as you proceed! You may also feel free to eMail me or call me at (805) 427-1128 if you need more information or advice on the implementation of these designs.

Please note, also, that I have purposefully published all my designs in the public domain for more than a year so that no one may patent these ideas and preclude anyone else from building and marketing them. My intent is to make them as widely and freely available as possible.
