Participants are welcome to hit the bay on a kayak, canoe, or stand-up paddle board.
The paddle is this Saturday morning, October 15h, starting at Check-in at the Coos Bay boardwalk. A luau will follow, with food and live music, and more information about the Surfrider Foundation. Registration is $25, you can sign up this week at Waxer's Surf & Skate shop. If you can't register until Saturday, just make sure you arrive early.
