Ladies Wellness SUP Elk Lake Weekend
with a Saturday night cooking class by Chef Bette of Well Traveled Fork
Elk Lake is one of Oregon’s most scenic summer destinations, and one of the best locations in Bend for stand up paddleboarding. Tumalo Creek’s Ladies Wellness and Stand Up Paddleboarding weekend combines healthy activities during the day with a little bit of indulgence at night. Enjoy a day of yoga, paddling and relaxing in the sun and then retire to your luxurious accommodations where you will participate in a cooking class Saturday Night taught by Chef Bette of The Well Traveled Fork, Central Oregon’s premier catering, teaching and culinary tourism company. Her philosophy on cooking is fresh, local, organic, seasonal, and sustainable, or FLOSS for short! She’ll pick up our ingredients at the farmer’s market, so dinners will be a surprise. Look forward to a few glasses of wine and laughs with your new gal friends along the way.
We’ll start each morning with a yoga fusion session overlooking the lake: this is the equivalent of a relaxation shower for your inner body. We’ll enjoy a group paddle around Elk with all abilities welcome. If you are new to the sport, you’ll pick it up in no time.
Long-time stand up paddle surf instructor, Sue Fox, will teach some intermediate and advanced skills for those looking to step up their game; others can enjoy a leisurely paddle around the lake, exploring the forested coastline of volcanic rock and hidden inlets and beaches.
Relax in the afternoon, or take a hike around the lake or up one of the historic trails just across the highway. Complimentary massages are included with this package, so make sure to schedule this during Saturday afternoon.
This weekend is guaranteed to be a fun, relaxing and action-packed weekend that will seem like you’ve vacationed for a week, but short enough to fit into your busy schedule.

The only thing better then stand up paddling with your friends on a beautiful summer evening is doing yoga on your board at the same time! Join Tumalo Creek’s SUP Yoga Night: Your host Shanan Kelley of Flow-Flow Yoga will lead an all-levels Vinyasa flow yoga session on the back lawn behind the shop and then take the group upstream to practice various yoga positions on the water.
The first 45 minutes will include dry land stretching, connecting breath, and opening the body. The focus will be on core strength, breath and balance. The group will then paddle up river to a section of very slow moving current to experiment with balance and different postures. Part of the paddle session will also include instruction for those looking to improve their paddling.
This class is for those with some SUP experience who are looking for a fun way to work out, enjoy the outdoors, and meet like-minded folks. Just bring yourself, an adventurous spirit and the desire to potentially get wet. All yoga abilities welcome…
Sometimes you have to travel the distance to really get away from it all...
Treat yourself to a week that will refresh your mind, body and soul. Tumalo Creek’s Panama Paddle and Wellness Retreat is part adventure, part healing retreat, part soiree. Join us in Santa Catalina, Panama, a world-renowned surfing location, for a week filled with yoga and meditation, paddling and surfing, and healthy meals made from locally grown produce.
We’ll practice yoga daily either in an open-air studio overlooking the surrounding coastline and jungle or directly on the beach. Each day will include activities like stand up paddleboard tours, surfing lessons, snorkeling and sea kayaking. There will be two trips out to nearby islands with gorgeous white sand beaches, abundant wildlife and great snorkeling spots around one of the largest coral reefs on the Pacific Coast.
This trip includes transportation to and from Panama City, and breakfast and dinner throughout the week. We’ll be staying at La Buena Vida Artistic Hotel, an inspired property in the small village of Santa Catalina. The owners are an ex-pat American couple who have created a truly inspired property. Every room is uniquely decorated with colorful tiling celebrating geckos and birds and other creatures native to Central America. The centerpiece of the hotel is an open-air café serving pancakes, omelets and light breakfast items, and fresh salads and sandwiches for lunch. We’ll take some of our meals here as well as going out often to experience the best dining options in the area.
Overall, this trip is a great opportunity for those who have always wanted to travel to Central America but would prefer someone else sweat the logistics. Our group will stay small, allowing you to have plenty of independence, but with your guides close by to help you make the most of your adventure.

Rumors of an Indian Summer in Bend, Oregon are confirmed!
Buy a boat and enjoy the beautiful weather while you can.
Where does the term Indian Summer come from anyway? The origins most likely derive from early New England settlers who would welcome the cold weather in the fall so they could leave their stockades unarmed. But if there was a warm spell they were in for it: this is when the Native Americans knew to attack!
Luckily here in Bend, an Indian Summer is a good thing. If you feel like the summer has slipped through your fingers this year, make a commitment to get out there an enjoy the temperate fall weather. (Local hint: you’ll have it to yourself, the crowds are gone!)
Take advantage of this time of year by investing in your very own boat and getting out on Central Oregon’s lakes and rivers. Come down to Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe on Labor Day Weekend September 1, 2, and 3, 2012, and check out our Annual Scratch & Dent Sale out on the back lawn behind the shop. There will be plenty of brand-new boats and SUPs with slight imperfections available to buy at up to 40% off. Area kayak and canoe representatives will also have some boats for sale from their demo fleets.
Where do these imperfections come from? Many boats and boards are shipped clear across the country, changing hands and trucks many times. No matter how well they are packed, a few nicks sometimes occur. Another contributing factor is when a customer is considering buying a boat and they demo it and it gets a little scratch. In both these cases, the boats and boards are basically as good as new!
This event is a precursor to Tumalo Creek’s Annual 10-Day Fall Sale, which begins September 23. Paddlers will have the opportunity to peruse some of the demo boats that will be released on September 23 and pick out the vessels they hope to buy at the end of the summer.
Tumalo Creek’s Labor Day Scratch & Dent Sale is three days only, so come down to the shop, try out a few boats, and plan to take one home. There is no better time of the year to buy a kayak or can
Bluegrass music takes many forms, from back-porch jams, to larger-than-life music festivals, and it’s no secret that no matter how it is presented, Bendites eat it up. Many may even consider themselves connoisseurs. This month’s Pickin’ & Paddlin’ band, Eight Dollar Mountain, promises to deliver the right amount of knee-stomping-yahooing to please the beer-spilling crowd, while also appealing to those who appreciate the finer things: picking proficiency, harmony, songwriting, and of course, a great mix of traditional favorites.
Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe and the Bend Paddle Trail Alliance is happy to welcome Eight Dollar Mountain to the Pickin’ stage on August 29, 2012 at 6:30 p.m.
Don’t miss the “Paddlin’” portion of the evening from 4 – 6:30 p.m. when Tumalo Creek’s expert staff and area reps will be on hand to get you comfortable in a kayak, canoe or stand up paddleboard. This is a great opportunity to demo various makes and models and enjoy a beautiful afternoon on the Deschutes in the high summer heat.
Pickin’ & Paddlin’ attendees can look forward to great local food by the Pizza Cart, pints from Deschutes Brewery & Cascade Brewing ($5 per pint), and an evening of catching up with friends, and making new ones. Pint glasses will be sold for $12, and two beer tickets will be included in the purchase.
All money raised will benefit the non-profit, the Bend Paddle Trail Alliance, the organization that is working to transform the Colorado Dam into a whitewater recreation area.
These next few months are absolutely critical to the success of the dam’s transformation. Bend Parks & Rec has included the project in the Bond Measure that will be voted on in November, and it is more important than ever that the community shows their support by coming to the event and making donations to the BPTA.
The rest of this year’s line-up includes Polecat on September 19, 2012.
Mark your calendars for this year’s Pickin’ & Paddlin’ Music Series on the backlawn of Tumalo Creek, and look forward to uniting with new friends and old, swapping paddling stories, and enjoying and evening by the river. With your support, it will be just a few years until the whitewater park becomes a reality.
