Kern River SUP

Kern River SUP

We had a couple of great Kern River SUP adventures last week…
Prompted to get away from the unhealthy air conditions permeating the 805 area over the last two weeks with the enormous Thomas fire…we headed up to the Southern Sierras and the Kern River Valley…

In addition to the great mid-December standup paddle conditions…we shared the fresh air…clean crisp water…beautiful Fall colors…great food…warm glassy conditions…air temps reaching up into the upper 70s…gorgeous sunsets…meteor showers…etc…with our friends Mike and Janine…

Here’s a bit of Zen paddling on a mellow stretch of the snowmelt fed Kern River…water temps from 40* F – 44* F…

Here’s a vid clip with drone footage and several other POV angles of standup paddling on the dammed up Kern River at Lake Isabella this past December week…
