We had a great group of folks who played hookie from work yesterday to go out to our beautiful Channel Islands with us for a SUP adventure day trip

Many people have seen the vid clip I put up online of Lori R. being the first person to standup paddle inside of the famous Painted Cave on Santa Cruz Island…so this group was game to also experience this unique adventure…
