Stand Up Paddle meet-up groups are awesome for finding like minded people where-ever you go. I enjoy hanging out with other paddlers and leading a few sessions here and there, especially the open ocean distance group in Orange County.
We held a meet-up last year that was like most others – but one of our guests/friends Annie Maize ended up writing about her stand up paddle learning experiences in the Community section of SUP the Mag.
I didn’t know who Annie was that day, or that what I was saying would show up in print, so it makes the kind words in her article super meaningful. It’s also motivating, and makes me want to schedule another open ocean stand up paddle meet-up ASAP.
The photo above is of my friend Bruce Stavron from one of our recent meetups. Join us for a tour of the same area, or hang with us at the meet-up and we’ll show you where Bruce is standing!
NOTE about the Photo in SUP the Mag: The photo Annie pulled and used for the article was from our social media feeds, and depicted one of our ACA Training days vs. our meet-up. But it certainly conveys the right tone, so we understand. 😉
