Wild and Precious Summer Camp: Stand Up Paddleboarding!

Back by popular demand - stand up paddleboarding!  We had so much fun last time, and people have asked me to arrange it again, so here you go!

We'll meet at Bayou St. John (more location details provided to those who sign up) and explore the bayou on paddleboards! I had an amazing time last time paddleboarding and I was brand new to it, so paddleboard virgins are welcome!

After paddling we'll sit in the shade and chat and enjoy refreshing drinks and breakfast-y snacks.

NOLA Paddleboards will provide the boards, paddles, other equipment and lessons, and I'll provide the drinks and snacks. Yay!

    So, for some reason I can only see 4 pics, but the email said 9 were uploaded. Am I crazy?

      Yeah- I accidentally uploaded ones from last time and then deleted them. Whoops!

    This was another beautiful morning on the bayou! Big fluffy clouds, fish jumping, and enough of a breeze to give us all a little bit of a workout! So great to meet new ladies and the "old pros"! I love our now "traditional" post-paddleboard picnic with mimosas! Great to hang out and chat with everyone!

    I am a definite probably plus 1. My daughters coming home from college on Friday night as soon as she's back home we'll confirm. Both of us are excited to try, I'll probably be a disaster but what the heck right :)

      Thanks for the heads up Carla :) I don't want anyone to miss out so don't hold a spot for us. I'll keep an eye on the event and if it works out great, if not y'all have a wonderful time!

    Although I was so nervous at the start, the women were very encouraging and the instruction was spot on. I did not fee pressured and there was a mutual support to the process. I would highly recommend this outing to anyone!

    Carla, I am so sorry for the short notice. I am so sick with some nasty bug. I was hoping it might pass. Please invite someone to take my spot. I sent Denise a message, but I don't know I'd she will get it in time. Sorry!

    August 10, 2013

    • Sarah Noland L.

      Thanks, ladies. I hope someone was able to fill my spot. I hate that I might have outed someone who wanted to go :(

      August 11, 2013

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
