Find adventure at Skydive Pismo Beach

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.

Get Out, Stand Up

 
Paddle boarding sweeps the Central Coast
At first glance, stand up paddle boarding looks like a sport with an identity disorder. The paddling aspect certainly seems reminiscent of kayaking, but the actual vehicle is a simple, over-sized surfboard. Riders wear calm, serene expressions as if they’re going for a pleasant stroll, except that they’re walking on water. Yes, stand up paddle boarding is a lot like other activities, but there’s nothing quite like it.

SLO athlete hikes the 500-mile Camino de Santiago through Spain

I may be the first person in history to take a 500-mile hike to heal aching feet. I’d been sidelined from running for nearly a year with tendinitis, but I could walk.  I imagined the Camino as a ”consolation prize” for all the races and adventure runs I was missing.  

The Camino turned out to be the grand prize. Quite simply, it was the happiest month of my life.
