Just spent a highly enjoyable long weekend paddling with the Ocean Paddlesports crew in Costa Mesa. I brought WAY too much cold weather paddling gear for air temps around 70 (yes, the locals were complaining it was cold) & water temp in the 60’s. We had great interval sessions, fun off-shore downwinders (had some Hawaii flashbacks as I skipped down the warm waves), and interesting spec-ski workouts. I highly recommend putting this destination on your ‘A-list’ for a quick & affordable warm weather paddling trip. DeAnne & Pat seem to have a constant stream of visitors and have a full fleet of new rental boats available. Be warned though, if you go out with Pat, Rich, Austin & Andy for a morning interval workout, it’s going to hurt!
The first Ocean Paddlesports shipment for 2014 just arrived with all the latest & greatest Fenn surfskis and accessories. All Fenn designs are now in stock, including the elite Glide & Spark, the proven downwind machine – Fenn Swordfish, and the reliable Blue Fin and XT. Fenn surfskis are made with pride in South Africa and their quality construction, superior designs, and unbeatable price point make the 2014 Ocean Paddlesports line-up stronger than ever. Please check out oceanpaddlesports.com for more info. Feel free to contact me directly for any product info or demo opportunities in the PNW. Fingers are crossed that 2014 will be an amazing downwind year! Looking forward to seeing you on the water.
