♦ "Race the Lake of the Sky" 6.5 mile event, June 28, 2014...

Cliff (our lead paddler) with another Podium finish - 2nd Place in his division.

The course this year was technical with many twists & turns.  Winds on the water made for

challenging conditions!  Log jams were seen around the buoys & a good pivot turn was an

essential skill to make it through the course.  Over 305 paddlers started this race with only

265 crossing the finish line.  Congratulations & well done!

♦ 2015 ConTiki Paddlesurf Adventure Camp ~ May 17-22 (5 nights)
Camping on a bluff overlooking the Pacific was awesome!  We had a campfire going every
evening, watched spectacular sunsets & enjoyed talking story!  We also had fun paddling in
the lagoon amongst an abundance of fish.  While exploring, a white Harbor Seal decided to
pay us a visit, which is not something you see everyday!  Throughout the week we scored fun
waist/chest high Surf in addition to some
tasty Campfire Cooking!  Our next ConTiki Surf
is in September.  You're not going to want to miss this one!  Stay tuned...

♦ 2015 ConTiki Paddlesurf Adventure Camp ~ September 13-17 (5 nights)
This Surf Camp was in Big Sur.  The majestic beauty of this part California's coast is inspiring!
As we set up camp under large coastal Pines, we were amazed at the turquoise water awaiting
us!  First 2 days... Sunny skies, no wind & head high peaks!  The ocean temp was 65f, which
for Big Sur is warm!  Day 3... Had winds on the water & it rained all day.  We built a campfire,
drank coffee, cooked great tasty food & talked story.  Day 4... Sunny skies, no wind with chest
high surf.  The ocean temps remained at 65f which meant no wetsuit!  With glassy peaks up &
down the beach, we had so much fun we didn't want to get out of the water!  Day 5... No wind, sunny skies & glassy peaks breaking 3' overhead, yeewww!  The paddle out was fairly easy if
you knew where to paddle out.  We didn't want to leave this incredible jewel!  Our thoughts
about this place & what we experienced are already calling us back!  Our next ConTiki Surf
Camp is in May 2016 in Southern California.

♦ 2016 ConTiki Paddlesurf Adventure Camp ~ May 8-13 (5 nights)
Camping overlooking the Ocean was epic.  We talked story around the
campfire & scarfed
plenty of tasty food for breakfast, lunch & dinner.  For light entertainment we had game &
movie nights.  This camp was another "All Inclusive" which included Campsite, Food, SUP
gear & Coaching.  In addition to learning valuable paddling techniques & water skills, our
campers learned to drop in & surf SUP style!  The weather was nice & mild with ocean temps
@ 63f.  The surf ranged from knee to shoulder high & was super fun!  Our next Camp will be
in September, 2016.  Stay in touch & feel free to contact us for any further details...
