Okay all you “Wait List” folks. Here’s the deal. We have about 80 boards, and maybe more. We have 100 kids on the original registration. Some kids don’t show up (as special parents, you know how complicated getting out the door can be). So, we get some no shows. Some kids just surf for a few minutes. Some surf as long as we let them! If you...

Hi Everyone! We have been working on some procedures to make this (rapidly growing) event run more smoothly. I guess we can’t wing it anymore.

We have new summer wear arriving daily (at least that’s what all those shipping notices in my email inbox are telling me, since I’m still in Costa Rica). Sooo, let’s all have a wine and...

Well, the guys at Saco Design are after me to update the blog. I know, I know, what a slacker I’ve been! Last summer was a zoo and I think my brain has recovered.  We expanded the lessons to many new locations and offered a few new classes.  We offered a bunch of Stand Up Paddle  (SUP) clinics through many parks and rec departments. Check...
