Hi everyone --- I've been going out at Indian Beach/Ecola nearly every weekend for a few months, and sometimes on Wednesdays as well. I'm just wondering if anyone else has been doing the same. I'm still learning but have progressed a lot the last few weeks (standing up more and more!). Anyway, would love to know if anyone else out there is from this group, or from Portland. It'd be fun to know someone else in the water, and maybe share a conversation and a bottled water in between sessions. Or build a fire and eat lunch on the beach. So, just testin' the waters here. And if anyone is a beginner, and you haven't been to Indian Beach, I can tell you that it is not intimidating, a perfect place to learn, and there are usually plenty of both guys and gals in the water learning too.
