Ford was in my 6th grade advisory two years ago and had always expressed interest in whitewater kayaking. He joined me for a few roll sessions in the pool and then went to camp in Western NC where he learned a lot of the basics. Fast forward two years and he has made some amazing progress. We got back into the pool a few weeks ago and he has been working on off side rolls, hand rolls and even back deck (rodeo) rolls. So it was only natural that when the Haw came up, that I take him out for a run.
As you can tell by the video, he did awesome that day.
I am so proud of him!
