River types include both bigger volume rivers and creek canyons. Features include ramping boulders, play featuress, creeking tight eddies, clean waterfalls, and basalt canyons. It is downright spectacular. Your guides know the features and can give you instruction on every boof, challenge move, play wave, and eddy line.

How much your skills will not only improve during your week, but how the lessons you learn will continue to improve your kayaking throughout the year.
