Shell Beach

An invitation from the McKay brothers (Mike and Gary) led to an excellent afternoon of paddling off of Shell Beach, CA. This was my first chance to take the Kyook into the ocean, and I learned much from the adventurous McKays.The afternoon included stops at numerous hidden coves, wading through tidal caves, shooting the arch, and paddling amongst seals, birds and dolphins! Shell Beach is the home of Central Coast Kayaks, who provide sales, rentals and paddling knowledge. The pictures below are courtesy of Gary. Click here for shooting an arch
landing at a cove takes a lot of bird poop to make it look like snow
