Meet other local Whitewater Rafting enthusiasts and plan rafting trips!
Updated 8/6/08-
the following key will be used for your profile title:
“Raft owner” “Kayaker” or “Paddler” plus your city of residence

I have started this meet-up to facilitate private (non-commercial) whitewater trips for folks living in southern California. Often a raft owner is looking for paddlers or for a second boat to accompany him. Similarly, kayakers may be able to connect with others with similar boating skills /interests. I’m also hoping to facilitate carpooling to the river.
Membership – open to all persons with a penchant for WW. Note that persons in the non-boat owner category “Paddler” are expected to be comfortable in river water, are in good physical health, are willing to help with boating and camping chores, and enjoy meeting new people.
