One of the most satisfying aspects of running Paddle Sports Center is that it gives us the opportunity to give back. We are often involved in projects like beach cleanups and safety trainings, and we hold regular events that educate and involve our community. We’re always looking for more ways to spread our love of the ocean and grow our tribe. For the past 8 years, we’ve been partnering with a fantastic local non-profit to share resources and create programs that get more people exposed to the benefits of being on the ocean. We wanted to let you know what we have going on this summer, and give you a closer look at our partner and their outstanding work with youth in our community.
It was late June and a warm night was about to fall. I had let the rest of the staff go home and I stood behind the counter, counting the sales for the day. I heard a group coming through the back door and looked up to see a gaggle of guides, mermaids and friends mosey through the back door. They shouted their hellos and set about socializing and putting on gear. I watched the group from the safety of my well worn shop stool and started to pack up for the day. I hiked my backpack up onto my back when the co-founder of CIO asked me where I was going. With a matter of fact tone I told him, “home” to which he replied something along the lines of “suit up”. They were heading out for a group paddle on the full moon and I could not have been more thrilled to be invited. Unprepared to paddle at night, I had not brought along a white waterproof light, so became paired in a tandem with a new friend.
