SAN CLEMENTE, California - Performance Paddling is excited to announce the Catalina Ocean Experience. Guided by elite paddlers Anthony Vela and Morgan Hoesterey, this 3-day, 2-night ocean adventure will take place in the pristine blue water of Catalina Island’s Two Harbors, from Friday, March 31 to Sunday, April 2. Open to both standup and prone paddlers looking to be more comfortable in, on, and around the ocean; the weekend will be spent paddling, freediving, camping, and learning about the ocean.

After arriving in Two Harbors Friday morning, participants will be treated to a brief history of the area from Two Harbors local paddler Natalie Foote, followed by a lesson in paddle adventure basics such as strategy, planning, packing and safety. Participants will then put that knowledge to use as they paddle to a remote campsite where they will spend two nights sleeping under the stars.

In addition to the fundamentals of adventure paddling, participants will be exposed to activities geared toward becoming better overall ocean athletes. Anthony Vela will use his years of experience as an elite paddler and coach to help participants become more efficient paddlers. Footwork, drills, and stroke technique will all be a part of the curriculum, and as an added bonus, Morgan Hoesterey will utilize the area’s pristine blue water to cover breath holding and freediving.

“Of all the ways you can have fun paddling,” says Morgan Hoesterey, “adventure paddling is definitely my favorite. I love being out in the ocean, under my own power, and ending up in remote locations. Each opportunity I have had to do these things has really been empowering, and that empowered feeling always stays with me, even off of the water. Over the past few years, I have been lucky to have participated in various paddling adventures; and now, I am so excited to team up with Anthony Vela to share some of the tips and lessons that we both have learned along the way.”
