Saturday is looking like one of the better days for an ocean paddle this week. The forecast is for 2 to 3 foot surf at 11 seconds, and the wind should be between 5 to 11 mph. That sounds moderate and not too bad with enough swell to keep it fun.

We’ll meet at Aqua Adventures on Mission Bay. Please be there around 8:30am so we can prepare to launch around 9:00. Then we’ll head down the channel out to the ocean. From there, we’ll go north to the Crystal Pier in P.B. and back. The distance for this paddle is around 9 miles.

Rentals are available at their regular rates.

After the paddle, we usually like to have lunch at the grill next door. You’re welcome to join us if you have the time and you would like to.

Disclaimer: We will have experienced paddlers on this trip, but they will not be responsible for telling you what is or is not safe for you to do. We watch out for one another and assist one another, but all individuals are responsible for, and manage their own safety. This responsibility includes assessing your gear, skill level, and physical conditioning relative to conditions and location, as well as making decisions about what you will or will not do. Participants acknowledge that kayaking on the open sea or bay is inherently dangerous and can lead to physical injury including death as well as property damage. Participants, on their behalf and on behalf of their heirs and assignees, agree to hold the announcers and other participants blameless in the event of such injury, damage or death. Please join us if you want to mildly stretch your capabilities, but please stay home if you would be wildly stretching them. Participants should have bracing skills, be able to self-rescue and assist in the rescue of others. They should be able to launch and/or land in small surf.
