Dave Grigsby, co-owner of Kayak Connection puts it this way: “We’ve stopped renting SUPs on the Slough because too many people were getting stuck trying to make it back against a headwind and the incoming tide. We also found that SUPs are more disturbing to wildlife, probably because of how much taller a paddler appears on a SUP. I’m not saying paddling a SUP at the Slough is always a bad idea, just that for us the problems outweighed the benefits and for that reason, we encourage kayaking at the Slough instead of using SUPs.” 🚣🏻‍♀️ Read all about paddling on the slough, link in bio! ...

“We need to decide what our relationship with fire will look like,” Robbins says. “Will it be massive amounts of toxic smoke that blanket our communities for weeks from catastrophic wildfires? Or will it be the limited amount of wood smoke produced by a prescribed burn? There is no such thing as a no-smoke or a no-fire option.” She pauses. “The good news is that we can decide what fire will look like in our lives.” 🔥 Read all about how we can learn to live with fire, link in bio 🔗 ...

Can you imagine the NBA or NFL without black athletes? Of course not. So why is surfing different? It’s all about the lack of access. For too long, black kids have been denied access to pools and denied access to beaches. They have also been denied representation in surfing magazines that traditionally only featured white guys and white girls in bikinis. 🌊 ⁠

Luckily, things are starting to change. A true evolution of surfing has begun and thanks to our friends like Rhonda Harper (the star of this issues cover) from @blackgirlssurf. 🏄🏾‍♀️ Read all about this massive shake up in the latest issue, 🔗 link in bio⁠

California evolved with fire. The Cultural Fire Management Council (CFMC), based on Yurok land in Humboldt County, is bringing back traditional uses of fire to revitalize their ecology, economy, and community. As Natives reclaim their right to use fire on the land, California’s 39 million other residents have an opportunity to acknowledge their expertise and learn from their wisdom 🔥⁠

What if the Washoe tribe became stewards of the Lake Tahoe Basin currently under management by the Forest Service? What if we transferred the management of this sacred area into the hands of the Washoe? Who is better qualified to care for Tahoe than the tribe that managed this stunning landscape for thousands of years before American colonists forced them into servitude and took their land?🧐⁠

Today the Washoe tribe consists of about 1,500 members living in the vicinity of Lake Tahoe and more are spread throughout the US. There are scientists, land conservation experts, and environmentalists within their tribal membership. Coupled with the wisdom of their ancestors, I would argue that these Washoe land-use experts can do a better job of managing Tahoe than the Forest Service.⁠
