I have been standup paddling for about a year, but have really got into it over the past 4-5 months. I paddle three to four times a week, doing about 3-6 miles per paddle. I have passed the WSUPA Certified Instructors course, and teach novices on flat water - mostly in the channel near the London Bridge in LHC, AZ. I was a participant in the Bull Head City Regratta a few weeks ago racing the 11-mile down river race. I finished in 1-hour 51-minutes with a 1.5 mph assist from the current.
I have a 11'6" Outer Harbor cruising board and use a high quality graphite paddle. I also carry a USCG approved around the waist PDF. My dog Pepper, a 30- pound mini Aussi, rides the board with me most of the time. She is equipped with a dog PDF. I own a shorty wet suit for the colder rides.
I am in LA about once a month and have a home in Burbank. I grew up in LA and know the beaches well. I would like to meet up with people who like this sport and want to get in some ocean time while I am in LA.
I live in Lake Havasu City, AZ, but visit my house in Burbank about once a month. I am an active senior who enjoys Sky Skiing, adventure travel, boating and other physical activities.
