SUP General / Re: The Big SUP...Big Sur by Stand Up Paddleboard
« on: September 24, 2013, 12:04:20 PM »
I'd say keep your toes out of the water rounding Point Sur.

And Pfieffer, and Lopez, and Cape San Martin, and Sierra Nevada, and Piedras Blancas....and right out in front of home. We had a good sized whitey clear the water at Montecito's right here in Cayucos yesterday. They're there!

At Fuller's I'll be popping the 8'6" surf shape off of the 12'6" expedition board and catching a few....check out the Infiltrator/S.E.A.L. combo from Corransup.com, that's what I'll be on! ;D[img]https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152251290539128&set=a.10150295667099128.411337.510619127&type=1&theater/img]

SUP General / The Big SUP...Big Sur by Stand Up Paddleboard
« on: September 22, 2013, 03:55:19 PM »
We're about to embark on our trip through Big Sur, paddling from Carmel back down the coast to Cayucos. The trip start wednesday October 2, and we are to arrive in Cayucos on Sunday the 5th. Personally I've been wanting to do this trip for years, and I'm really excited to be doing it with such a strong team! The trip is to raise awareness of the value in clean, healthy oceans, and to serve as a reminder of how important adventure, and the natural world, is to our own well being.

You can follow us more on Facebook at www.facebook.com/supbigsur, and if you're at BOP go say hi to the members of the team attending; Nikki Gregg, Mike Simpson, and Mark Olson (look for them at the BIC booth...!)

As with most undertakings this size, I've had a lot of help. Big thanks to the companies who have stepped up to help us realize this dream...Northwest River Supplies, Werner Paddles, CorranSUP, BIC Sport, Art In Surf, Elemental Herbs, Quivers.com, House of Jerky, and more....thank you!

SUP General / Hula Wave and Tower...
« on: April 30, 2013, 09:32:18 AM »
I'm a small retailer who has dedicated the last three years of my life to building a little SUP shop. I've always held "building community" as a primary goal, and through tons of free demos, races, clinics, donations, fund raisers, etc., I like to think I've been somewhat successful in building community while also building a business.

This morning I found an ad on our local Craigslist for a Tower inflatable board, like all of the Hula Wave ads I've been finding lately. Both of these companies actively encourage people to sell their products under the radar, not collecting sales tax, without a business license, etc. The ads invariably talk smack about the products the "local shops" carry, and about how expensive we are (we're not.) They also manage to say the usual....ie, their boards are better, blah, blah blah then everyone else's whose cost so much more.

Competition on a level playing field is awesome, for customers and the industry. But unless we want to turn into a niche sport, like windsurfing, we've got to keep the playing field level. I could choose to stop obeying the laws myself, drop my insurance (that would save me a bundle!), and support some soulless folks who are just cashing in on a trend, sending our money to china, and have no stoke themselves, but I won't. I'd rather see others step up and do the right thing by supporting those of us who are legit, and not supporting those of us who give nothing back in return. It very well could cost me my business, I've lost roughly a dozen sales in the last few months (but I've already had 3 of those cheap Hula Wave boards brought in for ding repairs...because the person selling out of their garage will never provide any follow up customer service.) But doing the right thing, setting the right example for my children, and sleeping well at night means more to me than that.

In my neck of the woods I've reported several "garage" shops to the BOE. I hope other retailers will step on board and draw the line too. Otherwise in 5 years the only place anyone will be able to look at or purchase any SUP gear will be online, only, and the choices will be very limited.

Events / Morro Bay Mystery Race....Sunday February 17th!
« on: February 13, 2013, 10:37:22 AM »
10 am. $20 entry, $10 for kids. Between 4 and 6 miles in length, the exact course will be decided depending on conditions! Start and finish at our dock, located at 1215 Embarcadero in Morro Bay!

Werner Paddles will be here for demos, questions, and to race. See if you've got what it takes to beat Werner Team paddler Alyson Fromm, or paddling legend Taylor Robertson!

This is a fun race, and we'll keep it in the harbor. But we are considering a short beach run on the far side of the and spit...where there is usually a little surf! Just saying....

For info or questions gives a shout at Central Coast Paddling...

Events / A fun little race on the Central Coast (California)
« on: January 18, 2013, 11:12:46 AM »
Next Saturday, the 26th, we're having a fun race called the Three Mark Fiasco, except there's four marks....inspired by the Three Bridge Fiasco, as long running sailboat race in SF Bay, you get to go around the three (four) marks in any order you wish. The course is just over a mile, and a full 360 must be done around each mark! We know it's a bit short to drive too far (my fastest time yet is 15:10), so if you want we can add a long leg and a couple more marks!

Look for another race on February 17th.....this one will be longer and worthy of some traveling!

Here's a link to the Facebook Event Page.... http://www.facebook.com/events/472466719455326/

Cost is $20 per adult, and $10 per kid. Standard categories, depending upon signups.

Course Maps are up and on-line. Check it out here, www.centralcoastsup.com/sup-cup.html

The Round the Rock race will be intense! Especially if we have surf like right now! Of course then it would also be hard to get everyone off their surfboards long enough to race!

Entry forms are on-line and ready to go.... www.centralcoastsup.com/sup-cup.html

Join us for a great weekend of paddling on California's reknowned central coast. Morro Bay is the heart of the central coast, and offers something for everyone, so make it a family weekend. Fall generally sees the best weather of the year, often coupled wioth good swell, so don't forget to bring a surf SUP too...
