U.S. Highway

Man Paddleboards Through Flooded Mill Valley

Californians love their outdoor sports, even when they're in the midst of a natural disaster.

So, when the streets buckled after an earthquake in Napa this summer, a bunch of neighborhood teens picked up their skateboards and jumped the uneven streets.

And, when the roads flooded in Mill Valley on Wednesday, the sixth consecutive day of rain in the Bay Area, one man decided to get where he needed to go on a paddleboard.

The NBC Bay Area chopper flew near the Strawberry Village Shopping Center and over U.S. Highway 101 at the Highway 1 offramp, famous for its gorgeous coastlines and high-tide flooding.

Dressed in a blue windbreaker, cap and shorts, the man can be seen paddling past flooded cars – and the occasional seagull – en route to wherever he was headed.
