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

  1. Join a local kayaking club.
  2. Attend pool sessions to develop a bomber roll.

Phase Two: Gain Experience

  1. Run as many local rivers and work as many holes at class 2 and 3 to get experience.
    • Wing Dam
    • Mongaup
    • Deerfield
    • Yough
  2. Attend at least 1 week long training session at one of the premier kayaking training centers.

Phase Three: Plan the Trips

  1. Gauley
  2. Grand Canyon
