APE Creek Geeking Clinic – Monthly Social

tommygunn wrote 222 days ago:


Creeking is a style of whitewater paddling that is very different than typical big water rivers and is often misunderstood by new paddlers. Our local creeking legend and club Boofmaster, Wesley Bradley, will be providing us with a 90 minute introduction to this exciting whitewater genre. He will cover definitions, terminology, techniques needed, proper gear, and some creek locations.

We are allowed to bring in snacks and light refreshments. Please bring a paper and pencil, a boof quiz will follow the clinic.

This will be in Room 223 at the Toy F Reid Employee Center – 400 S Wilcox Dr, Kingsport, TN 37660

I will be purchasing pizza if you want to join my pizza order, please contact me.

Please join us afterwards for roll practice at the Kingsport Aquatic Center ($3).

Lean to Surf Clinic #2

natefry wrote 787 days ago:


We had our 2nd learn to surf clinic on the White Salmon river (WA). We ran the lower section which is about 3 miles and had a great surf wave on it. We had a smaller turn out than last time, but one couple (father / daughter) drove 150 miles EACH way to join us. Just for the clinic. So I think something is going right. We worked a lot on eddy turns, ferries, peel outs and and even a “S – Turn” before arriving at Cave wave. One of our paddlers managed to get on the wave and surfed like a champ.

After the paddle we handed out a little SWAG and enjoyed some Ninkasi beers! Good times in the Columbia Gorge!

Do you love paddling in the summer and want to keep it going in the winter? But you’re not too sure what it takes to do it safely?  Overmountain Outdoors and Wesley R.

We will be showcasing many products from Immersion Research & Kokatat during the clinic.  We will give tips and tricks on proper use and care of many products you can use to keep you toasty warm in the cold weather.
