I just found out about this event yesterday so I think I’ll reward myself for a lot of hard work around the house with a bit of paddling at Jordan River Sunday so I can support the Surfrider Foundation.
“Surfers are once again taking to their boards to raise awareness about public access to beaches along the Juan de Fuca coast. The Surfrider Foundation Vancouver Island Chapter is hosting the 2nd Annual Paddle out for Public Access at Jordan River to raise awareness about the importance of public access to coastal areas and preservation of coastal ecosystems.
The event will include a paddle out, beach cleanup, BBQ, yoga for surfers demonstration and speeches by local community groups working to protect areas along the Juan de Fuca coast.
All beach enthusiasts are invited to join us and celebrate our coastal spaces. If you would like to participant in the Paddle Out, please bring your own paddling device, wetsuit and warm clothes.
Event sponsors include: Moksha Yoga, Coastline Boardshop, Ht0, Sitka, Incite Screenprinting and others…
Getting there will require a bit of driving, but not nearly as much as going to Tofino and in return I get free yoga, free BBQ, get some SUPIng in and meet some more local folks – seems like a reasonable trade.
I better get back to work so I don’t have to feel guilty about ditching chores Sunday afternoon…=-)
