Choosing Battles

Aaahhh... the Battle of the Paddle came up so quickly this year!  It was just a couple of "Battles" ago where I won first place in the surfboard division.  Those were the days when I had time everyday after work to get out on the water.  Currently, I can't even find time in the week to cruise up to the beach to dip my toes in, let alone go for a long-distance paddle.  These days I'm chauffeuring my senior daughter from one activity to the next and shuffling paperwork for college applications.  So unfortunately, I'll have to skip another Battle of the Paddle to do the Battle of the Colleges (visiting Cal Poly SLO the same weekend).  If you're not having to choose between battles like I am, make it out to beautiful Doheny Beach and give Uncle Gerry a big hug for me.


  1. I will make it out there for you Leeze. =) I made it out to a SUP race at Liberty Station on Saturday. I know it's not a HUGE one, but I want to train for it to race next year. I want you to train me, BUT man, you are BUSY with that awesome Kotah of yours! I'm finally hooked to this sport! Wish you pushed me harder. lol. Anyways, catch ya at the next wave break. =)

  2. Nice Melika! So glad you're having a good time with it. Just get out on the water as much as you can. Do short races to keep yourself on track but most importantly- have fun!
