Welcome to the 50th edition of The Weekly Paddle Report. We’re closing in on back-to-school season, view and it’s time to get those summer days on the lake while they last. The paddling has been excellent. And we’ve got some more great conditions in the forecast.
This week we will encounter some thunderstorms through the weekend before skies clear for next week. Winds continue to jump up in the afternoons and calm in the mornings and evenings. We’ll see winds out of the southwest, cialis so the South Shore should be least impacted. This week, ed I’d suggest Monday and Tuesday morning as the best time to get out there.
We’ll be kicking off Week 6 of the Wednesday Night SUP Series on Aug. 5. Last week, Josiah Brackett and Summit Moulton set the race course. Nobody knows what surprises might be pop up this week. We hope you’ll join us for the race. Remember, registration includes dinner and a great night of evening of paddling.
On the national SUP scene, we’re seeing some big moves. SUP Magazine has announced it will sponsor a new event called the Pacific Paddle Games. The two-day competition will take place Oct. 10-11 at Doheny State Beach. It’s cool to see a new large event emerge in Southern California.
My video for this week is some old footage of legendary surf pioneer Duke Kahanamoku riding his paddleboard at Waikiki Beach. I love these classic surf films. Even through the grainy, shaky footage, you can see everyone is having a blast. It makes me want to get out on the water.
As I mentioned last week, the ladies of South Tahoe Standup continue to host the Monday Night Ladies Night. It’s free if you’ve got your own board or rentals are available for a discounted price. All women and girls are welcome to join.
We will have rentals available at our lakeside locations throughout the weekend. If you have any questions about paddling or are looking for gear, please swing by the shop. Also visit our Facebook page or Instagram for the latest news. Have a wonderful week out there.
