We’re looking at another spring-like week in Lake Tahoe. If you didn’t catch any of the perfect glass last week, you might still have a chance to get out and paddle. The South Shore waters were nearly deserted and flat as a mirror Saturday and Monday when I went out.
The weather this week will remain fairly friendly. Temperatures will be in the 50s throughout the weekend. Winds are mostly calm, though they do peak at around 5 mph in the afternoons. The best days look like Thursday and Friday with combination of little wind and rising temperatures. Of course, keep an eye on the webcam for live conditions.
With all this warm weather, residents and visitors are starting to look for fun outside the ski resorts. On my paddle to Emerald Bay on Saturday, I ran into a scuba diver who came all the way from Fresno to dive around the barges. I shot a few frames of him checking out the big sunken hulls.
In SUP news this week, momentum is already rolling for the upcoming standup paddle race season. Supracer.com posted their top races and the most significant races of the year among which is our very own Race the Lake of the Sky. A standup paddler’s video of orcas in Southern California has gone viral and been picked up by several TV networks (check it out below).
There are races this week in Hawaii, New Zealand, Mexico, Southern California, the Cayman Islands, Florida and Europe. SUPracer.com’s Rogue Race Calendar has all the details. If you’re looking for a quick outing, check out the lake this week, but make sure to dress for winter conditions.
The shop is open various hours on the weekends. Give us a call or shoot us an email if there’s something specific you’re looking for. Or you can always post on the Facebook page. Also, keep an eye out for The Morning Report, as Chris has been a good job of catching the sunrise. We hope you have a wonderful week out there.
