              After spending three weeks paddling various rivers throughout Colombia, a group of international paddlers decided to attempt two un-run rivers in the state of Antioquia. The team focused specifically on the Rio Cauca and the Rio Nechi. Both rivers had their own challenges and difficulties along the way, but in the end the reward was well worth the struggle. Follow along as the team charges down the steep rivers, hides from coca farmers and perseveres through the vicious jungle to complete the first descent of these two wild rivers.

                  The North Fork Championship It seemed as if the North Fork Payette rose to the challenge of the North Fork Championship, as paddlers came from all across the world to compete. The day before the event the NF Payette came up to a challenging and awesome flow – showing it’s classic impressive identity. Kayakers from all over the globe had made their way here to hangout and party but more importantly they were here to compete. The top athletes flew off the Red Bull ramp one at a time into the mayhem that awaited them. Lines were extremely difficult, the whitewater violent and unpredictable, but every competitor knew with this crew that someone would stick the line. Everyone rose to this challenge. The camaraderie elevated to the top as athletes helped each other with their lines. Competitors styled the course as hundreds of spectators could be heard over the roar of Jacob’s Ladder + Golf Course. The level of kayaking had been pushed yet again. The second year confirmed that the NFC is here and it’s here to stay. A huge SHOUT to this amazing river and all the AWESOME people that make the NFC happen! We are excited for this event to continue hosting the highest level of competitive kayaking. FIRE !!!
