Shem Creek Paddle Board Shootout

Shem Creek, Mt. Pleasant, S.C.
I had the day to myself so I drove over to Mt. Pleasant to watch the paddle board competition at Shem Creek. These things amaze me. The first time I ran into them close up I was in a kayak and they looked like they were walking on water. I still have no idea why it is called a Paddle Board Shootout.

More photos.

I watched them go out and hung around thinking the neato shot would be to see them all coming back into Shem Creek until I overheard that the elite race was 8.2 miles and the recreational group was going 3.4 miles. Hello? These folks must have some arm muscles.
