How and when does a kayaker learn when to run a rapid and when to pick up and walk around it? For me it started with a day on the Futaleafu River, Chile with Lars Holbeck to start learning that valuable lesson.

Twenty one years kayaking in Costa Rica.  Asked if it ever gets old the answer is no!!  Not the way rivers change in this country.  You never know from one week to the next - let alone one year to the next what new rapids will form, river beds will shift from one channel to the next, or back hoes appear to help rearrange things-- and that does not include the water levels that change from one day to the next depending on the weather!  There cannot be another place where rivers change as whimsically as here in Costa Rica.  The question is why?

It is an Olympic year! And an ambitious group of slalom kayakers will be working hard this summer to qualify for the few coveted slots on the US team headed to London. While slalom only hits the front page every four years, amateur slalom events have been a tradition in the southeast for 40+ years. The history behind the numerous events held in the southeast is long and noteworthy.  Many an Olympic paddler has emerged from the ranks of these southeastern races. Even more noteworthy is that many of the original participants and/or organizers of these southeastern events still participate today as friendly competitors, organizers and volunteers.

If there was ever a person whose entire destiny became saving rivers, it might be Matt Terry.  The founder of Ecuadorian Rivers Institute (ERI), Matt has dedicated the past 15 years to promoting environmental awareness in Ecuador—a country that struggles to balance the future with putting bread on the table today.

Look around western North Carolina and it is easy to list off all the reasons why you would move there if given the choice—especially if you are a kayaker. Setting aside all the obvious reasons, it was a rubber duck that sealed the deal for me.

Your vacation time is valuable. And any paddling vacation should be a great vacation!! Do a little homework—ask some questions before committing to who/what/where you go. 

And enjoy using your kayak as a means to explore the world!

The advent of the Noah Jeti revolutionized not just creek boating, but boating in general in the very early 80's.  I looked at the Jeti as being the first generation creek boat ever designed.   Prior to the Jeti most paddlers were still paddling 12 to 13" kayaks.  Having a "short" 10" boat gave paddlers a craft that turned much easier, still had plenty of volume and yet still had some boat speed to make moves on tight creek runs in the south east.

Learning to kayak can be a challenge for an adult. Not because of age. But because learning to kayak necessitates checking your ego at the front door (or at riverside in kayak terms).  The challenges to learn to kayak are soon exceeded by the joy of paddling.  And that joy of paddling is the motivation behind our friend Doug Worful coming to gripes with having to learn to kayak not once--but twice.

Brian has not made his last trip to Ecuador...but with medical school on the horizon it may be a while before he can return. Our dream is that he can return to Ecuador--not just with us but maybe with Doctors Wthout Borders. How fortunate for the world! Following is Brian's tribute to leaving--sentiments that many of us feel departing Ecuador.

First descents. In most countries they start out with the most obvious runs– roadside boating, the runs that have access, the runs that have the most potential; eventually goals are set on those that have a drop that looks the best on television/ in a magazine/ or for setting a record.  And to all those who have chalked up any of the above, way to go!!

But once upon a time–and still once in a while a first descent is done for the joy of exploring a new river; for the gratification of challenging oneself on a run that is inaccessible, remote, not known and not for the glory or the media attention but just for the thrill of paddling down a river that no one has ever been on.  What a thrill.  Brian, Abraham and Brandon have the bragging rights to a first descent down the 50+ mile Cofanes River in northern Ecuador.  But since they were too modest to brag about it, we will do it for them!  After some cajoling we got the beta from them about their descent down the Rio Cofanes. Read on!

In 2008, Endless River Adventures pledged support to the newly formed Augusta, GA chapter of Team River Runner. After some initial gestures of support, ERA finally got to have a hands-on weekend with the group kayaking the Tuckasegee River and rafting the Nantahala River.

Steve has been on staff with ERA since 2000. And he has come a long way from a scrawny 14-year old boy scout from Orlando working towards his Eagle Scout to a new ERA staff memebr, to one a top raft guide/kayak instructor/international guide here at ERA.  Pulling his story out of the vault was a refreshing reminder of how the follies of youth can lead to serious life changing experiences.

Maybe once it was the young guns who set the standard for who some of us wanted to be... but we have a new set of heros: our friends that have seen their 70th birthdays come and go and are still out there living it up on the river. Keep it up! You are setting the proverbial "high water mark" as far as the standard for being a kayaker. Example of this: our friend John Judy. Not scared to \'fess up that he is in his 84th year, as long as the cardiac doctor says "yes" John is still headed for the river any chance he gets!

Reflections from Ken Kastorff

“Ode to Attila” was written by two ladies, Bonnie and Ann, who came to me and asked me to teach them to be how to kayak around 1990. The two came in one day, sought me out and said, “We want you to teach us because we heard you were a good instructor but more important, you never let folks say no or get away with anything on the water.”

I laughed and said, “Be careful what you ask for!!”

Having worked as a kayak guide in multiple countries over the years, I have definitely been a part of “experiential education” in paddling in foreign countries-- both first-hand and second hand. I have learned over the years that there is a common-sense checklist that is good to follow. I have by no means come up with a complete list, but merely one that might help make sure your trip does not end up a bad story written up in American Whitewater.

Craig Parks joined the ERA team in 1997.  He learned to roll from Ken at the age of ten.  Fast forward to a number of years later and Craig was paddling at the Falls one day. A a few minutes of watching him, Ken knew immediately he would be the next outstanding ERA instructor.  Craig has lived up to and surpassed that challenge in his roll as instructor/guide/boater.
