My white water kayaking list is pretty simple. I want to kayak 2 rivers. The Grand Canyon and the Gauley (Lower and Upper). When I can confidently run both rivers, the force will be with me and my training will be complete.
How I'm going to get there
I have a 3 phase plan to get there.
Phase One: Work the Fundamentals
- Join a local kayaking club.
- Attend pool sessions to develop a bomber roll.
Phase Two: Gain Experience
- Run as many local rivers and work as many holes at class 2 and 3 to get experience.
- Wing Dam
- Attend at least 1 week long training session at one of the premier kayaking training centers.
Phase Three: Plan the Trips
- Grand Canyon
