High and dry

Andrew Dillard draws attention to kayaking Wednesday by “floating” above Buckley Park. It’s going to be a limited water season, but is the drought really bad enough to start kayaking on land? Dillard and his friends are calling “dry-land kayaking” the new movement. Local residents could see the group trying out their new skills at Chapman Hill. They even tried to kayak out of a tree in Buckley Park. “It’s pretty gnarly to roll it,” said Peter Wanberg. One the men, Phil Gibson, got the idea for “dry-land kayaking” from a friend at the University of San Francisco, who calls it the “DLK Movement.” Enlarge photo
