Wildwater Information:
How I started paddling wildwater:

Although I started participating in local races in 2009, and occasionally paddled Wavehoppers, I only started padding wildwater boats in late 2018, after learning that both the World Cup and World Championship were going to take place in the US, in 2020. I bought an old but good boat from former US Team member Chara Whittemore (Thank you Chara!), and immediately loved the challenge of learning how to handle this new beast of a boat. I have been working at it, and loving it since!
