“We get to enjoy this beautiful sunny day out on the water,” Remley said. “Today is special because my family is here to visit me.”

Junior, Aaron Tasub, Zoology major, had his fourth go-around at Paddlefest this year

“I moved up here from from Southern California and you can’t get this kind of experience down there,” Tasub said.

Paddlefest takes place annually, and is reserved as a Family weekend event, but is open to all.

“The Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center offers students the chance to do a lot more outdoor activity,” Tasub said. “I try to get out her and kayak as much as possible.”
