Stolen Kialoa Paddles

Hi everyone. Be on the look out for two Kialoa Paddles that were taken from the back of my truck. Either late yesterday evening at Harbour Town in Sea Pines or early today in the Wal-mart parking lot or Greyco hardware lots. My even been from my garage last night.time line was 16-17 hours.. ... a Methane Carbon Fiber Kialao paddle 78 inches and a PuPu green bladed pretty new also 78 inches. Both have distinguishing features with nicks and scrapes from my year of use on them.  ... . The Methane paddle is one of 8 on the Island and I know the other 5 SUP surfers who have them. The PuPu is pretty common  several paddlers have them and two shops sell them.. Please keep an eye out for them.. I know its my fault for keeping them in the bed  of my truck  but now I've learned my lesson .... I'm too trusting  I guess...  

The two above pics are stock pics of  the paddle and the one's below are the actual paddle each..

Happy Mother's Day

My Mother kept a garden, a garden of the heart;

She planted all the good things that gave my life its start.She turned me to the sunshine and encouraged me to dream …fostering and nurturing the seed of self esteem. And when the winds and rains came, she protected me enough …but not too much – she knew I’d need to STAND UP. strong and be tough. Her constant good example always taught me right from wrong …markers for my pathway to last my whole life long. I am MY MOTHER”S GARDEN. I am her legacy. And I know she sees the love reflected back from me. you,  miss you !

Sunrise paddle around Pickney

Early morning paddle at Sunrise. Jesse and I paddled around Pickney Island 14.3 miles. Was a perfect day to paddle and on the port Royal side of the Island in the flats we seen 30 plus sharks cruising around. One 6 footer Bull Shark and lots of Bonnet Head and Hammer Heads Stingrays and Skates, turtles, reds and tons of bait fish. Mackey's creek side of Pickney Island a along the banks was a graveyard of collapsed trees looking like driftwood from the tide and weather. Here ate some shots from the experience.

 Bull Shark 

This shot was taken by Jesse with his GoPro and won GoPro shot of the day..
