APE's Logo

Refine your creeking skills from the author of the Creeking Bible!

(Registration Deadline—April 17, 2016)

Appalachian Paddling Enthusiasts (APEs) is pleased to announce another of its Paddle with the Pros clinics, this time by hosting an Advanced Creeking Clinic with Leland Davis.  Leland has been teaching people to kayak for over 20 years.  In 2005, he became one of the first instructors to offer creeking-specific clinics, and he has since lead creeking clinics and adventure paddling trips across the US, in Mexico, and in Chile.  He’s the author of two whitewater guidebooks, ‘The River Gypsies’ Guide to North America’ and ‘North Carolina Rivers & Creeks,” and was the original founder of the Green River Race.

This one day course is designed for the aspiring advanced level creek boater.  Previous creeking experience, class 4 or higher proficiency and a solid roll are required.  The course will take place on a river similar to the Watauga in difficulty and specific location will be determined as we get closer to the date.  The class will be limited to 8 students.  If you’re a creek boater looking to up his or her game this is your chance!  Send in your registration form and payment to take advantage of this outstanding and rare opportunity to learn from one of the world’s best.

COURSE OBJECTIVES: Development and refinement of skills that will allow participants to increase their competency and comfort on class 4/5 creeks.

COURSE PREREQUISITES: Students should be proficient in class 4 whitewater and have a solid roll.  Participants should be in good health and overall fitness and possess solid swimming ability.  Minors must be accompanied by parent or guardian.

The Boulder Bend Bash

natefry wrote 658 days ago:


Originally, the Boulder Bend Bash was intended to be a team time trial event. However, the day the race took place there were one thousand other things going on between The Leavenworth Film Festival and the rafting companies being slammed. So we mixed things up a little bit.

Andy cannot wait to fill out this waiver.

Kyle Scott discussing his training techniques with Tegan

Cody Albright finishing an interview while his team prepares his equipment

Our core group of racers slowly trickled into the take out at the Happy Wave Beach Club where Osprey Rafting was kind enough to let us set up shop. With all of the river guide kayakers tied up in their entertainment duties, we had a relatively small turn out. Nonetheless, it was the most diverse turn out of paddlers any Leavenworth World Kayak event had ever seen.

Hailing from Colorado, we had Andy Zeiger representing the squirt boater scene with team Shark Attack. From Ellensburg, Washington, Eric Wintard was bringing it tough with the inflatable kayak. Holding it down for the modern creek boat class was Kyle Scott, and last but lot least, Darren and Cody Albright had their game faces on as they prepared to assault the race in the Dynamic Duo. I would also like to give a big shout out to Tegan Owens from British Columbia for helping out with the race and gracing us with her presence.
