We were pretty excited to find out today that we have a small mention in the NY Daily News!! Word of our tribe is spreading and we couldn't be more proud or excited! #mokuloapaddletribe
Today we found out that our tribe was mentioned in 2 great new articles! A few weeks ago we were very fortunate to host a great group of travel writers from various parts of the country. Of course we LOVED showing off our beautiful slice of Long Island by taking them paddle boarding in our homebase on the Connetquot River! Thanks so much to Chelsea Stuart (Jetsetter) and Abbey Wade (EverydayChampagne) as well as the Long Island Visitors Bureau for showing us so much love! We had a fantastic time with all of you!
The Moku Loa Paddle Tribe attended the 1st annual Patchogue River Cleanup event sponsored by GreaterPatchogue.com , Fire Island National Seashore, Bluepoint Brewery, and other local sponsors held at the Watch Hill Ferry Terminal in Patchogue, NY. Our group joined in along with approx. 100 volunteers to lend a hand in the cleanup of the river. Each of our paddleboards was outfitted with buckets, garbage bags & bins, gloves, and an enthusiastic paddler! Over the course of a few hours we were able to collect a bunch of garbage on our boards and all of us felt great for helping out. Of course we celebrated at an awesome afterparty thrown by Bluepoint Brewery which is also located on the river. Thanks to everyone that participated!
Today was a unique day on the water for the Moku Loa Paddle Tribe. I traded in my SUP for a ride along with the Friends Of Bellport Bay as they took a trip out to one of their oyster fields for a checkup! The Friends of Bellport Bay is a fantastic group that is working hard to improve water quality in & near Bellport Bay. One way they are accomplishing this goal is through the thousands of oysters they have planted right here on the south shore. When you realize that each adult oyster can filter up to 50 gallons of water each day, it's easy to see why the interest in these little guys has yet again exploded across the island! If you are looking to get more involved with a local cause, please consider volunteering for their events!
Today the Moku Loa Paddle tribe celebrated our third anniversary as a paddle tribe by throwing a fantastic paddle party! We feel so fortunate to have such a wonderful tribe of paddlers that has grown every season since 2014. Many of our paddlers come from different backgrounds and are from towns across Long Island, but we all come together to share our love of paddling. Each week we get together for our social paddle where we share stories, advice, paddling tips, encouragement, and plenty of laughs! Your referrals and patronage also helped us to have a very successful first season as a business. Our tribe is truly special and we look forward to another fantastic paddle season with all of you in 2017!
