Still hoping to find some footage from Youtube!
I just wanted to pass along some information to paddlers everywhere.
NOAA has recently proposed to close the west side of San Juan Island to kayakers. If you are not familiar with San Juan Island the one place that commercial and public kayakers can safely launch in in the middle of the proposed closure zone.
NOAA is using science that is inconclusive to pass regulations that will have a huge effect on our local economy and for all paddlers who desire the freedom to paddle the beautiful shoreline.
I have more detailed information on my blog
Pleas visit and follow the links to NOAAs proposal and to email address there to make a public comment.
Please help keep our shoreline open.
