Whitewater Clinic with Johns Hopkins University

I just finished an awesome clinic with Johns Hopkins University.  We paddled for four days on a different river each day.  The water levels were great.  The skies were clear.  It really was a perfect long weekend of paddling.  We paddled the Green, Chattooga, French Broad, and Pigeon Rivers.  This is my third year working with this group and each year I am a little hesitant because the rivers are going to be cold and the weather is horrible for people to be learning to paddle.  But each year this group shows me that the passion for learning can over come any thing.   These guys are so fired up to paddle and learn more that by time we start our first paddling session I am ready to go and paddle all day long and teach these guys because they are so excited about the whole thing.

It is hard to not be stoked when folks are having this much fun.

We even let Canoes come along.  Nice Save!

Setting up for Bulls Sluice!

Nice Line Paul!

Thanks to Green River Adventures and Johns Hopkins University for having me be a part of this great session.  I hope we get to do it again.  Its a great way to get spring started.

Now I need to get going again.
