From the end of the pier in Avila Beach, the ocean seems like a warm, welcoming place. The smooth glassy water surface reflects a buttery, golden morning sun and the white craggy rock islands hugging the coastline to the south seem like a breadcrumb trail leading to adventure.
Inaugural run benefits Operation Surf Central Coast
Do they ever quit? It sometimes seems as though the folks at Amazing Surf Adventures are always on the go, and what they are up to this fall is no exception.
After hosting Operation Surf Central Coast 2013 the week of Oct. 3-9, the Amazing Surf Adventures team has no intention of slowing down as they gear up for their inaugural Operation Run, an 8-mile fun run on Veteran’s Day, Monday, Nov. 11 in support of all military members, past and present.
I grew up in San Luis Obispo. It was an idyllic and active childhood thanks to my amazing parents. I was one of those kids whose parents would literally tell me go outside and play until dinner. This resulted in frequent tromps all around Bishop Peak where I invariably got muddy at the pond. It also included daily trips to the SLO Swim Center for swim practice. The smell of chlorine wafting over the pool on a summer morning makes me want to dive in and crank out a few 1000 meters (time has allowed me to romanticize those killer workouts).
The Paso Robles Food Cooperative, founded by Montgomery Norton, seeks to become a hybrid of well-studied models of similar establishments around the country and, after being awarded a Seed Grant from the Food Co-op Initiative, the local co-op is well on its way to becoming a reality.

Fitness is the reason everyone works out. Weight loss, muscle gain, mobility, functionality, flexibility and a general disposition toward health and wellness are all parts of the idea of fitness. But with all the gyms out there that use the word fitness, there is only ONE program that actually defines fitness and sets up a recipe to achieve that definition of fitness: CrossFit!
There’s a new club in town and it’s about to change the way people start thinking about working out. This new facility, GIVE Fitness Health Club, was established under the umbrella of its parent company: Working to GIVE, and the grand opening in Atascadero is slated for mid-January.
A country club isn’t necessarily what you might think to choose when deciding to join a fitness center, but at the San Luis Obispo Country Club you will find not only a first-class fitness center, but also quality personal trainers who will work with you one on one.
In 21st century America, planes are a fairly normal aspect of the daily grind. Most adults would say they’ve flown, but Chris Lee, general manager of Skydive Pismo Beach, would disagree. To him, that would be like saying you went for a swim without ever leaving the boat. In order to fly, you’ve got to jump.
