Golden Gate Sea Kayak Symposium is Less Than One Week Away!

Saturday, 25 January 2014

I can't believe that The Golden Gate Sea Kayak Symposium starts in less than a week away! I'm sooooo excited about it.

Looking the teaching schedule, I was pleased to discover that I'm assisting on three full-day sessions which include:

  • Rock Gardening Skills & Safety with Roger Schumann and Cate Hawthorne
  • Advanced Boat Control Master Class with Jen Kleck and John Dye
  • Alcatraz SF Bay Journey with Gordon Brown and Bryant Burkhardt

Coaching at the Golden Gate Sea Kayak Symposium

To help prep for the weekend I decided to turn to Hollywood to tell me what to do. Last night was all about Sean Connery and Nicolas Cage in The Rock. They had to run around Alcatraz and save San Francisco from a nerve gas attack while this morning I got ready for the inevitable a real life car chase by watching that famous chase scene from the movie Bullitt. Here it is below because Steve McQueen has never been cooler and the movie is 100% awesome.

Other than that I just need to pack and figure out how I'm going to get my gear on the plan while keep within the super restrictive bag requirements.
