50 years after building his first canoe in 1962, Nat Jaeggli constructed his first strip canoe. He found strip canoes to be “the perfect balance of craft, function and beauty.” Nat is generously donating one of his fine strip canoes to be auctioned at our Spring Gala. Check out his canoes and pictures of his shop at Canoes of Coos Bay.
Join us for our second annual Gala Extravaganza Spring Into a Surfrider Summer! The event features 6 courses artfully created by Black Market Gourmet, paired with 4 beers from Southern Oregon Coast microbreweries, rum from Charleston’s Stillwagon Distillery, and coffee from Charleston’s Bridgeview Coffee Roasters, plus live entertainment, and a Wall of Beer. This event raises money to support our Scholarship program, our Youth Chapter, and coastal water sampling.
