The Golden Gate Bridge San Francisco from a hilltop
Five world wide famous backs hiding the world wide famous bridge:
I paddled up to Alcatraz in San Francisco Bay – the world’s famous prison island – quite some tides around!
It was a great play area – much better than I was expecting! In the bay on tidal races, around the bay islands or going out of the gate into the open, this weekend very swelly sea. Friday were up to 40 kn winds, Saturday a Tsunami warning, Sunday bright sunshine and lovely waters! All days were great paddling conditions and possibilities for everybody’s taste and skill level! Sean Morley and Matt Palmariello did a great job on organizing. Come and join us next year!
Some other strange crafts were around at Sausalito marina:
This asian guy paddled his SUP (stand up paddle board) in tidal waters kneeling, later standing, in very slow motion. He had the longest paddle I ever saw, with two twisting handles pendicular attached to the probably 3 m long double blade. Amazing style!
One disadvantage has the plastic bottle construction: The place for sponsor logos is limited! :-))
