South Beach SUP'rs...Raumati, Kapiti Coast (Sunday)
Our good stand up paddling mates will be out on the water from 10 am at Raumati South just paddling, hanging out and chewing the phat.
When we get hungry which will be around high noon.....we'll all be rolling into one of the local cafes to pump some dosh through their tills.
Bring any board you like......leave the propoganda behind.......this activity is for the big band of laid back stand up paddle board locals up the Coast.......and you'll be very surprised how many you'll see up there.
Have the bestest weekend possible on the water where ever you are....peace out.
