I was just down in California to see next winters Volcom snowboard clothes, and managed to get in 6.9 km paddle in Newport harbor.
What a fantastic feeling to get back on the water.
Got to use Jim Terrell’s personal – prototype race paddle. áSuper cool new design – Jim truly is the mad scientist of the SUP paddle world.
Thanks to all those who made it possible for this Canuck to paddle in non frozen water.
Volcom for getting me to SoCal.
Jim and Elizabeth at Quickblade for the paddle and allowing Tommy to take me paddling.
Tommy Holbrook for being my paddle guide and driving me to and from paddling.
And to Tom Holbrook for letting me use his board – even though he didn’t know I used it!
