Idaho River Kids Playboat Training


We had a busy weekend paddling. Friday night Scott and Thomas worked the kids on some surfing and ferrying. It was pretty chilly and a storm rolled in just as we arrived at the gutter. Things calmed down and we had better weather by the time we finished. Warm food and hot-chocolate helped – thanks Mike!

Saturday we hit the river and worked on some down-river moves and eddy-line moves. As we dropped into Bennett’s Rock snow flurries began – but these kids are troopers and all were having so much fun that we had to keep them moving or they would have stayed at each rapid surfing until dark!

One of the great things about spring paddling is that aside from 3 catarafts and a train, we had the river to ourselves :-)
