Hi Kendra, another of our members paddles a skin/frame inflatable (Trak is the brand I think) and she participates in lots of group paddles. I don’t think you need to feel limited by that type of kayak (if it’s a reputable manufacturer). As for storage places, I know there is a user group that stores their kayaks at Barnet Marine Park. I think the best way to find out about it is to contact the City of Burnaby Parks and Rec. I tried to find something online, but no luck.
