Get Out, Stand Up

 
Paddle boarding sweeps the Central Coast
At first glance, stand up paddle boarding looks like a sport with an identity disorder. The paddling aspect certainly seems reminiscent of kayaking, but the actual vehicle is a simple, over-sized surfboard. Riders wear calm, serene expressions as if they’re going for a pleasant stroll, except that they’re walking on water. Yes, stand up paddle boarding is a lot like other activities, but there’s nothing quite like it.

The most unique workout… Barre none

Location, location, location. Apparently it makes as much of a difference in a workout routine as it does in real estate. Perhaps this is because not everyone is inspired to exercise at the sight of an industrial warehouse gym or a room full of hulking workout equipment. Some of us find motivation in the finer details. And for this set, Assets BarreFitness™ has you at ‘hello.’

Luffa Love: locally-grown luffas and herbs provide natural relief

Is it a sponge? Is it a plant? Just exactly what is a luffa and what are the benefits of using one? A visit to The Luffa Farm in Nipomo for a tour is just the thing you need to do to learn all about it.
 
“They’re sponges, right?” That’s the question most people ask when they come to the farm. And the answer is no, they are not sponges like the ones that live in the ocean. A luffa is a plant. Proprietor Deanne Coon and her family have been growing luffas for more than 20 years.
