VIDEO – Why We Paddle: The 6th Annual Deception Pass Dash

Since the first Deception Pass Dash in December 2006, the Dash has grown into Pacific Northwest’s premier winter paddlesports race. It is easy to come up with reasons why so many people are attracted to this event — the challenge of paddling in strong tidal currents, the possibility of rough winter storm conditions, the stunning beauty of the Pass, and the excitement and sense of camaraderie that comes from participating with so many other paddlers. The 2011 Dash was a two-day paddling festival, which involved about 150 paddlers in surfskis, paddleboards, hawaiian outrigger canoes, and rowing shells as well as sea kayaks.
