The Golden Gate Sea Kayak Symposium
A British Invasion
By: Conor Mihell
Don't be surprised if skegs outnumber rudders at the second annual Golden Gate Sea Kayak Symposium, held Feb. 26-28 in San Francisco Bay, Calif. Organizer Sean Morley says the British-style, rough water-focused event was designed as a counterpoint to the typical North American sea kayak "demo day" festival. "It's about skills training as opposed to being a sales event," says Morley, a British ex-pat and president of River and Ocean, a San Francisco-based outfitter. "The idea is for people to come and learn."
