Paddle board year round!
I have lived by the beach most of my life, yet I have never paddle board. How is that possible?
Although I grew up at the beach, paddle-boarding was never something my family did. I was never introduced to it until moving to the Southbay.
During the summer, my 11 year old finished her first Junior Lifeguard program where she participated in a relay run~swim~paddle board race. She chose to paddle and absolutely LOVED it. I was obviously excited for her and quickly decided I needed to get on this paddle board love train.
Paddle~boarding has become a huge trend. It has clearly been around for years, but for some reason I feel as though it’s everywhere and everyone is doing it.
Recently, the owner of Nikau Kai in Manhattan Beach was so generous to donate a private lesson towards The Richstone Center Gala Event. During my visit to his beautiful Waterman shop, I decided that was it…and booked my lesson.
I look forward to paddling with my daughter in the Pacific Ocean and spotting a blue whale. How amazing would that be!
