Indian Summer Bliss

August 15, 2012

Ask a Newport Beach local and they’ll tell you that their favorite months of “summer” are September and October – “Indian Summer.” During this magical time of year, the streets of Newport have emptied out from the summer rush, the beach is yours alone, restaurant reservations are easy to come by – and the weather is, well, sublime. We have some great ideas on how to make the most of these months. First, enjoy Sunset Paddles, which are great way to enjoy a perfect Indian Summer evening. Grab a few friends and meet them after work for a paddle, then after enjoy drinks at Back Bay Bistro with Exclusive Pirate Coast Happy Hour.

Looking for something more challenging on the stand up paddle board? Come and give SUP Yoga a try. You will start with a stand up paddle lesson so you can paddle to the yoga destination, then you will enjoy a Vinyasa Flow style practice which will unfold progressively (layering and modifications) and include “savasana”, and a short paddle session back to the beach. It is HIGHLY recommended that you already have a studio based practice and have a good understanding of alignment and core engagement which are crucial elements for safe execution of the postures on the stand up paddle board.

Ready to get off the board and hop aboard a 70′ whale watching vessel? Head over to Newport Landing Whale Watching at the Fun Zone in Newport Beach. Currently, giant blue whales and finback whales can be spotted off the coast of Newport Beach.
