First Free Stand Up Paddle Clinic/Demo of 2013

Eight hardy souls took a chance with the weather and were rewarded with a nice mild, sunny, windless 6pm Sun & Ski SUP clinic last Wednesday with a wonderful presentation by Holly Evans from Wai Nani Surf and Paddle ( and follow-up on-water demo at Wayzata Beach.

Stand Up Paddle is America’s fastest-growing water sport, for adults and youth of all ages and activity levels. It’s fun, easy to learn, great exercise, and a wonderful way to explore the peace, tranquility, and beauty of Minnesota’s abundant lake and river shorelines. Does it require special strength and athleticism?–the answer is no, you can make it as easy or as strenuous as you want–your decision. We have two more free sessions scheduled 6pm to 7:30, Monday June 24 and Wednesday July 17; advance reservations required, maximum 12 per session due to paddleboard availability.

Oh, by the way, a light drizzle started as we were putting the boards away after last Wednesday’s Demo.

Biking and Yoga with Sun & Ski, Ski-Away, Lole, and Bikini Tini

Last Saturday morning dawned sunny and beautiful–and even if it hadn’t we’re so tired of weather talk that we wouldn’t mention it anyway–and we set out on our bikes for the Dakota Trail and lush Noerenberg Gardens on the shores of Lake Minnetonka. There we were treated to a half-hour yoga session courtesy of Lole Womens Activewear with instructor Nicole Eikenberry. We should have known she would be able to help us find recently underused muscles connectors and tissue and give them a bit of a workout, and it felt really good.

Back to Sun & Ski and a social hour with Lole and Patty and Amy from our Lake Minnetonka area’s own Bikini Tini Cocktail company (–we’d really like to kick off every summer like this! Thanks Ski-Away, Lole, Bikini Tini and all who joined us.
