THE NEW SCHOOL OF PADDLING IS OFFICIALLY IN SESSION.
The old day's of surfski's are the stuff of legends; Tippy, ocean going slivers of carbon fiber reserved for the frozen chosen of the paddling elite. You likely know the types; they have quirky accents, sport Olympic medals for jewelry and as toddlers they wore speedos instead of diapers.
I am none of those things. I wasn't raised in the ocean by nursing on great white sharks. I don't personally know Magnum PI and I didn't pen Laird's favorite tattoos. My first kayak was an inflatable. With pedals. I didn't start with great natural balance, but I've learned that balance isn't as important when the focus shifts to connection. Connection with the water, your surfski, your mind and the world around you. It's what makes paddling a surfski so manically, magical. Even for those of us who don't speak dolphin.
Thankfully, we're not alone.
If you want to learn a new sport and feel the exhilaration of surfing open water wind waves, the team at Epic Kayaks has put together a revolutionary line of surfski's for people just like us (aka mortals!). Even better, we partnered with Deep Cove Kayak in nearby Vancouver BC to offer the entire line of Epic Surfskis and accessories right here in Bellingham.
If you'd like to arrange a personal demo or private lessons, feel free to contact me.
