Hi Folks,

I thought it might be fun to get out and play in the swell that Florence sends our way. The initial plan is to launch from Kings Beach at 10:00am.  Stay tuned as the venue could change if the swell size increases above current projections. This trip will likely be a level 4-5.  If you’re not certain if this trip is for you, please contact me by Friday. I will update the venue info on Friday. 

Best,

Tim

Hi Tim. I definitely want to get on the water this weekend. Consider 3rd beach as a backup if K.B. is too big. Rich C.

Hi Folks,

We’ll stick with the original plan to launch/on the water at 10:00 from Kings Beach in Newport tomorrow, Saturday, 9/15.

Best,

Hi Tim,
I'd like to go but if you think this is beyond my skill set I'll defer to your judgement.

Hi Bill,  I appreciate your enthusiasm and willingness to try stuff. However, we are looking at long period swell and an exposed rocky coastline. I don’t think that the conditions are a good match for your current skill level.  I’m happy to work with you in the future to develop your paddling skills.

Best,

Tim
