Nantahala training run

  • No location was chosen

  • Hey guys, i am taking a friend down the Nantahala this upcoming sunday. He is a beginner, and learning the ropes. I am going to be taking anybody who wants to go down, and teaching river basics, such as ferrying, peel outs, eddying, surfing etc. It is recommended you know your roll to attend. This training trip will be perfect for beginners/intermediate kayakers that are looking to improve their skill. If you are a decent kayaker, and looking to improve, we are going to work on doing some class 3-4 moves on this class 2-3 river. So if you've been down the nanny before, and want to style it a little more and do some more complicated moves, this would also be a good run for you.

    Chota is doing a training trip down the Tuck that day. Would your beginner be better served paddling the warm waters of the Tuck with lots of safety boaters along?

      Well if people are learning on the tuck they probably shouldn't do the nantahala. I was wanting people who are interested in doing more of the nanny. People who have paddled it before but are will a beginner in need of ferrying, faster water eddies etc
