Blog – World Kayak Richmond – June 2015

This has been a good month for paddling – ok, what month isn’t a good month for paddling?!?  The James River has been low but the Lower James through downtown Richmond has retained adequate levels for padding.  I just read a recap of the Coastals trip to paddle the Yough, Lower Big Sandy, and other rivers to our north.  And we’re getting ready for our first Hometown Throwdown here in Richmond (taking place this Wednesday, June 24 at 6pm – here’s an event link:

https://www.facebook.com/events/1437408479912844/

Since this is my first blog post as Richmond’s World Kayak Ambassador  I’ll give you a little background on myself.  I’m originally from Little Rock, Arkansas.  I moved to Richmond in January of 2014 following a year working for Nantahala Outdoor Center and Jackson Kayak.  A large part of why I chose Richmond is because of the year round flows on the James River and the overall quality of whitewater in the area.  I’m excited to represent World Kayak and have the opportunity to re-establish a presence here with 2-3 Hometown Throwdown (HTTD) events over the course of this summer.

That’s it for now.  I hope to see everyone at this weeks HTTD!

Winter Boating

james wrote 1141 days ago:


A mild winter provides local boaters with the opportunity to get out and enjoy some spring boating conditions. This week the temperatures are up, and there are more kayakers on the river. Our winter flows on the Shoshone typically range from 200 to 500cfs. The water is cold, and the rocks are about three feet out of the water. Seeing these rocks is a little unsettling due to the realization of just how many sieves, undercuts, and razor rocks are lurking just below the surface.

Boater Chick Festival 2014

james wrote 1443 days ago:


The Boater Chick™ Festival (“BCF”) is a grass-roots, not-for-profit event that began in 2008 to give women in paddle sports the opportunity to paddle together, learn from one another and gather in a friendly and supportive environment.

BCF features clinics and guided river trips on Class II – V whitewater for kayakers and canoeists as well as friendly and fun freestyle competitions and races, including the “famous” BCF Boater Cross on the Cheoah River. Saturday evening is filled camaraderie, delicious food, local music, awards, gear raffle, bonfire, friends…and the annual Boater Chick™ of the Year Award.

While all river activities are ladies only and geared towards whitewater kayaking and canoeing we extend an invitation to everyone in boating to join in the festivities. Squirt boaters, slalom and wildwater racers are welcome. Boater dudes and doggies are welcome for the off-the-river festivities as long as both are leashed ;-) The Boater Chick™ Festival is not for profit. All profits from the event will be donated to worthy organizations. Past recipients include American Whitewater and First Descents.

Event website for registration: http://boaterchickfestival.info/
