Winter Lesson and Tour with Florida Paddler

L to R - Rob, Darrell and Mark. 
This week Mark P of Florida called me up for a intermediate lesson and tour. He was referred to me via Ballard paddler Darrell Kirk's site, Stand Up Paddle the World. Cool connection. Darrell's blog is worth checking out - tons of great podcasts with local paddlers and paddling industry folks. And check out Darrell's many paddling travels to the Salton Sea, Chicago River and a mine in Missouri - 400' below the ground.

Mark and I went out last Sunday for a 1-1 lesson to refine his current skills and teach him a few new tricks as well. He was preparing for a race the following week in Melbourne, Florida with master paddler Larry Caine would be present offering clinics and such.

See my prior post on what we covered with Mark during his lesson here.  Thursday we grabbed Darrell and paddled out around West Point Lighthouse into South Beach below the bluffs and over to Perkins Lane. Beautiful flat glassy day, warmer than usual!
