Channel Islands SUP Adventure (Continued)

Here’s a few more images from our recent visit to the Channel Islands…

Hiking trips on the islands with a Naturalist added to the adventure…and gave you a different perspective than you got on the boat or standup paddle board…

This is an incredible area to standup paddle…and, to learn how to SUP…the interest level was so high that we ended up teaching the entire crew!!!

The waves in these parts strike fear in mariners, and surfers…long known for their intensity and danger…home of Shark Park “The Heaviest Wave in California”…that clip was from a film that my friend (& fellow standup paddle surfer), Greg Huglin did…click link for more…

You can also listen and see Chuck Patterson, Hobie’s SUP hellman, talk about Shark Park…

I standup paddlesurfed a lesser wave…but, it was heavy nonetheless…rocks…kelp…heaving lumps of H20…the standby skiff wouldn’t have kelped (er, uh, I mean helped…;-) much if you were trapped on the inside…and you are a long way from medical assistance…

It has been lightly surfed before…but, never standup paddlesurfed…
I dropped in on a heaver and survived…prolly won’t do it again…;-)
The pics are under wraps…but, I will share these with you…
