The Lost Coast of California by P&H Paddlers Admin
 

The Lost Coast of California

Last month I paddled the 75 miles of the Lost Coast of California with three friends, all of us instructors with California Canoe & Kayak.

I decided to use the P&H Delphin to demonstrate that it is a great expedition/playboat crossover.

The plan was to exploit every play spot and the Delphin, despite it’s full load was really fun.

We passed mile after mile of stunning coastline and found some wonderful campsites.

This is Ghost Point, a ‘secret’ surf spot that has earned it’s place in California surf folklore.

We found this cool cave and I was so busy filming I forgot to watch out for the rock! Check it out on You Tube.
You can read my full account of our journey on or CCK Staff Blog.
The Delphin had plenty of space for a multi-day journey and whilst it certainly isn’t as fast as my Cetus MV, when we found a feature and started to play I was so happy to be in my Delphin. It rocks!

Thanks to my sponsors!
