2022 PECHO FUN RUN RECAP

Pale Kai hosted a wonderful beach day in Avila featuring a mixed crew fun run course with 5 & 12 mile options. We invited some of our closest clubs to join for a fun time with some friendly racing. The start of the day had light fog conditions that kept the water very calm for the paddlers as they headed north of the breakwaters to Pecho Rock. The course took them by the Port San Luis light house with stunning views of the Central Coast that can only be seen from the water! Our fundraising committee hosted an incredible raffle with ample prizes and many of our guests walked away with great treasures donated by local businesses. The BBQ pork plate lunch sold out quick. We thank everyone who was able to participate in this wonderful day!

Take a minute to watch this great video made by Jordan Gravatt, you may notice the water color looks a little like Dr. Pepper...a "red tide" condition was happening in the area during our event but we think it captured the spirit of the day! Mahalo!
Thank you to our guest videographer: Jordan Gravatt of Tattooed Media

PADDLING ADVENTURES

As we came up on the beach outside the surf, it was so much mellower than the day before. Instead of crazy messy conditions, the peaks were consistent and easy to spot. Not to mention smaller. This day had become a picturesque sunny sky scene. With mellow 2-3' waves and a friend rocking his bright orange cap on the sand waving his arms to guide us to the right spot. Micah went first once we felt we had a good window between sets. He made it mostly in, but got his ama lifted on the inside and went for a minimal swim in the shallows.

One of Clarke's goals is to paddle as much shoreline in California as he can, with as many paddling friends who are willing to join him.
GET A JUMP ON PLANNING FOR THE 2023 SCORA IRONMAN RACE SEASON...MARK YOU CALENDARS!

Our 2022 Family and Friends Day came together with many of the most treasured PKO supporters! We took some time on the beach to show them the canoes and basic paddle technique. Everyone was given a seat role and Pale Kai members got to take these new paddlers out for a taste of outrigger paddling. The course took them around the piers in Avila...we think they now have a better understanding of how we like to spend so much of our time! Thank you to all involved!

Did you see our canoe float in the Downtown SLO holiday parade?
The drizzle made all the lights sparkle and shine as we paddled our way around the downtown area of San Luis Obispo spreading good cheer and making spirits bright.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM PALE KAI!
