Lastly, Central Coast standupper, Tom Reily, brings our attention to a good fund raising cause…

SAN LUIS OBISPO JUNIOR LIFEGUARD FUNDRAISER

TheEvent:

15th Annual Ken Harmount Pier to Pier paddle September 13th 2008. This 6 mile paddle from Old Port Beach in Avila to the south side of Pismo Pier raises money for the Junior lifeguard program in San Luis Obispo. This is Surfrider sponsored event and cost $20 for members and $30 for non members at the event. Registration is at 7am with a paddler’s meeting at 8am and then a group start directly following. Last year there were over 12 SUP and many of them paddled back from the pier to Avila.

Ken Harmount was an advocate for the ocean and was a lifguard in Morro Bay, helped start the Surfrider chapter in San Luis as well as the Junior lifeguard program. He was injured in a snowboarding accident and is now a partial quadriplegic living in San Jose with his family. His friends started this event 15 years ago to keep his energy going and to help kids learn about the ocean and the stoke it can provide.

Please join us this year and all paddle craft are welcome from surf skis, paddle boards, SUP, kayaks. surfboards etc. We hope to have over 75 people in the event and will have a swag raffle at the end of the course. There will also be a junior paddle board race at the end of the event at 10 am from the Park street parking lot. I hope to get a few kids on SUPs also if there are a few folks who will lend them out to the kids.

Thanks again and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly at 805-234-1227 or call Central Coast Kayaks to register. 805-773-3500
