Jill Kahn: The first paddle of the season brought an unexpected tranquility: the still water mirroring the silence of the still-dormant, summer dwellings lining the bay, the “as above, so below” reflection of the snow-capped peaks resting gently on the surface. The crystal clarity of the lake revealed the storm-etched ripples in the sand, appearing like an ancient, sacred work of art. Stand-up paddle as meditation. Jill Kahn on Lake Pend oreille on April 29, 2014

Never know when they might show up, but it's special when they arrive.

Wayne Limm After several days of unusually high Santa Ana winds, we were blessed with a glassy, calm Southern California morning. An impromptu gathering of paddle buddies took off on a relaxing paddle from Cabrillo Beach to "Palms". About a 6 miles round trip. Along the way I learned about San Pedro history from long time local surfers turned standup paddlers. Love this sport and the friendships that are easily made. Picture is me backlit and silhouetted.
