Archery on the Central Coast

There’s something inherently romantic about archery. Perhaps it’s the simplicity, the fact that a stick and some string can send an arrow flying clear across a field. Or maybe it’s the bridge archery creates between modern men and women and our ancient ancestors, people whose lives depended on their ability to shoot accurately. For Riley Royce Smith, a local marksman and archery instructor, the most enjoyable aspect is the Zen-like peace he gets from the repetitive act of mastering a craft.

Becoming the All-Terrain Human

Kilian Jornet Burgada is the most dominating endurance athlete of his generation. In just eight years, Jornet has won more than 80 races, claimed some 16 titles and set at least a dozen speed records, many of them in distances that would require the rest of us to purchase an airplane ticket. He has run across entire landmasses­ (Corsica) and mountain ranges (the Pyrenees), nearly without pause. He regularly runs all day eating only wild berries and drinking only from streams. On summer mornings he will set off from his apartment door at the foot of Mont Blanc and run nearly two and a half vertical miles up to Europe’s roof — over cracked glaciers, past Gore-Tex’d climbers, into the thin air at 15,781 feet — and back home again in less than seven hours, a trip that mountaineers can spend days to complete.

“If you run, you are a runner. It doesn’t matter how fast or how far. It doesn’t matter if today is your first day or if you’ve been running for 20 years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.” – John Bingham

Paddling the Ocean Blue: Sea Kayaking on the Central Coast

We floated through the ocean swell dipping our paddles gracefully as we glided by the coastline of Santa Barbara County. Our destination on our sea kayaking tour was El Capitan Beach where we would disembark, take our camping gear out of the kayak’s cargo hold, and spend the night at the campground. So far we had covered about six miles and the paddling was easy and uneventful. Suddenly something broke through the surface of the water on either side of our little band of kayakers. “Dolphins,” somebody cried. Sure enough a pod of Pacific dolphins were joining us on our journey.

Taking the Plunge: The Avila Dolphins

 

Taking the Plunge: The Avila Dolphins

By Jamie Relth

From the end of the pier in Avila Beach, the ocean seems like a warm, welcoming place. The smooth glassy water surface reflects a buttery, golden morning sun and the white craggy rock islands hugging the coastline to the south seem like a breadcrumb trail leading to adventure.

That’s how it seems.

Living and thriving with the big “C”

I grew up in San Luis Obispo. It was an idyllic and active childhood thanks to my amazing parents. I was one of those kids whose parents would literally tell me go outside and play until dinner. This resulted in frequent tromps all around Bishop Peak where I invariably got muddy at the pond. It also included daily trips to the SLO Swim Center for swim practice. The smell of chlorine wafting over the pool on a summer morning makes me want to dive in and crank out a few 1000 meters (time has allowed me to romanticize those killer workouts).
