Stand Up Paddling … in whitewater? Hmmm

27 May

Interesting story in the Denver Post about a whitewater competition on the Colorado River near Glenwood Springs (aka “the turnoff to Aspen”). It mentions Dan Gavere or Hood River, and Werner Paddles. Gets you thinking … what about the lower Hood River, once the Powerdale Dam comes out and the stretch of river opens up to recreation? Question: What happens when the fin of an SUP hits the rock in a river? Kayaks, at least, can skid over, right?
