Sharkbite Challenge Time and Events Schedule and where to get a bite to eat

We’re in Dunedin Florida with Distressed Mullet and Paddle Monster. The long drive from North Carolina was rewarded with amazing food at The Serendipity Cafe. Amazing, Clean, fresh food made by owner, chef Kim Mohr with love, joy, humor and and music. This is one of those original creations that rewards anyone who stumbles through their doors. I could eat every meal here.

It looks like the heat wave has passed as have the storms. The temperatures should be in the 70s with mild onshore winds, but that could change.  Larry Cain, Teneale Hatton, Johnny Puakea, and Oscar Chalupsky are all in town.

We even got to see Wendell and Huberto!

Friday, April 7th

Due to onshore weather conditions on the beach, your clinics with Johnny Puakea, Larry Cain, Teneale Hatton, and Oscar Chalupsky will be held on the Dunedin Causeway. The meeting place is just past the kayak rental/tiki on the left hand side. The address is 61 Causeway Blvd, Dunedin, FL 34698.
