As water people, we love our environment. We work, play, and relax in and around the water and there is nothing more disturbing than trash in our favorite venues. What can we do to help? Read about how one of Kialoa's ambassadors is embracing the clean up efforts in her area. Maybe we can all start something like this in our backyard playgrounds?
Accabonac Harbor Paddle & Clean Up, East Hampton NY
June 23rd @ 10AM
STAY TRUE TO YOUR ENVIRONMENT! Join Kialoa Elele and Starboard National Team Rider, Evelyn O'Doherty, in a precious paddle to protect the environment. One of the great, pristine bodies of water on the Eastern tip of Long Island in New York, is a gorgeous nugget known as Accabonac Harbor just off of Gardiner's Bay. The 1.5 mile long protected flatwater arena is home to shellfish, osprey, migrating birds and small bait fish. In truth, it is one of the cleanest bodies of water left on Long Island.
Evelyn is passionate about keeping her backyard clean and raising awareness about ongoing water issues on Long Island. Accabonac Harbor is her training ground year-round to prepare of the North East racing circuit and, as she says, "heaven on earth". She even collaborated with the Nature Conservancy to create a short film about it.
Meet at the end of Landing Lane in Springs (off Old Stone Hwy) in East Hampton @ 10AM for a paddle clinic with Evelyn, discussion and spring paddle along Accabonac Harbor. Co-hosted by the Accabonac Protection Committeeand Surfrider's Eastern Long Island chapter. The paddle will include a tour of the gorgeous waters of Accabonac, encourage paddlers to enjoy the sunshine and collect any trash discovered along the way.
