November 16 – What does socially distanced outdoor fun look like? It starts in the surf and ends on the crag! On a recent weekend, Outdoor Education Coordinator Zach Byars and Math Teacher Soren Stewart took eight high school students surfing at 5:30 a.m., then headed to the local mountains with six students for a rock climbing excursion. Two students, junior Alex Manning and senior Andrew Thacher (L17), pulled double duty on both trips by surfing in the morning and climbing in the afternoon.
Byars led a trip themed “Women in the Water” this month as well, taking nine freshman girls to Mondos surf break to showcase their water skills and learn some new ones on SUPs, kayaks, surfboards and boogie boards while watching the setting sun at Solimar Beach.
