|Dear Slickrock Friends,
Thank you for following us, visiting us, or contemplating a visit to us.
Next season is proving to be extremely popular, and we may well be in a position of turning people away on some weeks.
Neri Chi with guests for a night snorkel week before last
The business has never been pretentious, in fact, quite the opposite. Less is more, and the rustic cabanas, with a relaxed vibe is rare these days, in the plethora of options a mouse click away.
Humble beginnings (around 1988) on the beach we used to rent in Placencia, Belize
From a truck with kayaks in Moab, Utah, founded by Cully Erdman in 1977, to today’s private island in Belize, those very humble beginnings are still within the soul of the business. The largest array of sports equipment, a scenic environment, sustainability, and an immersive cultural experience are the nucleus of the ethos past, present, and future.
New equipment will finally be imported from the US, after a two-year blip, due to the borders being closed down. Neri has been doing this annual road trip for over a decade, which Cully did from 1977. Eight days from Moab to Belize City, via Mexico is how every single kayak, SUP, windsurf, truck, van, and trailer has made it to Belize since 1986. In the previous years, road trips were to Chiapas, Mexico.
Cabana thatching and repairs will be undertaken in October, once the hurricane season whittles down.
Sun, you see
Blue, the sea
No bar tabs
Palm trees sway
Hammock breeze sway
Belly full, excess
Stars at night
Moon in sight
Kayak, or snorkel
Windsurf, or a book full
Switch off the mind
But not these memories, behind
We’d love to welcome you next season.
