Exploring the Big Sur Coast on Stand Up Paddle Board with Brent Allen Outside Brent Allen

I have been looking at maps of the Big Sur Coast for a couple of years and did a recon paddle in sea kayaks in 2014 with friend Stephen Donahue from Monastery Beach (just south of Carmel) to Garrapata Beach and back.

We don’t have a very big window of calm seas to embark on these types of adventures , so 8/23/2015 we (Brent Allen and Harry Deisroth *15 years old) launched from Monastery Beach and paddled 18+ miles down the Big Sur Coast and finished at the little sur river.

The north end of the Big Sur Coast line does not offer many places to go a shore . This section of coast line is riddled with rock outcroppings ,steep cliffs , short notice fog banks, and a NW wind that will have you committed to going south.

August seems to be the one month that offers the opportunity to see this location on (Stand Up Paddle). FYI Andrew Molera State Park in Big Sur would be the best stop location.

The biggest section that sends you out in the channel is the Point Sur Lighthouse. It would be wise to get around this early when the winds are at the lowest point.

Note : safety do not plan on cell phone reception -best to have marine radio.
