We have our launch spot all picked out. Our destination in mind, the route we plan on taking and all the necessary gear for most any situation! This will be a short paddle. The first leg is 1.3 miles on the Noyo River. Then, 1.7 miles on the ocean to our destination, approximately 3 miles one way.
It is a completely open part of the coast. So, we do have a plan if the weather changes. Turn around and paddle, paddle, paddle!!! LOL…No, we will stay off the coast and ride the swells back to the mouth of the Noyo. Maybe even, a chance to ride a small wave in! We know to check the weather and tides before we launch. We are packing a little extra food and water just in case we have to wait it out! Being prepared never hurts. It is going to be a great day!
