South Fork Opening Day Make-Up May 20th

South Fork Opening Day Make-Up, May 20th

Dan Menten Book

Bad weather may have kept us from the usual Opening Day, but we have good news!

On May 20th, CCK will be holding another event to celebrate the high water, hold some classes, and offer some sales.

Water levels may still be high, and this will affect classes for at least the next month or two, but the Outpost is open for business both Saturdays and Sundays, from 9 AM to 5 PM.  Stop on by if you want to say hello to Gary, or demo some boats, including the new Jackson Antix.  We carry kayaks from Jackson, Dagger, Pyranha, and Zet, and a ton of apparel and accessories from NRS, Kokatat, Sweet, Astral, and many more.  Check it out and take advantage of some sales we'll be having that day!

For those who signed up for classes at our Opening Day event, we are offering make-up opportunities to paddle safely on big water, including an Introduction to Big Water River Running which has not yet filled up.  Sign up right away to secure your spot.  We'll have classes taught by Pyranha paddler Pete DeLosa, as well as expert paddlers Phil Boyer and Haven Livingston.

We will also be providing food, and will continue the (sold out) raffle drawing for American Whitewater!

Last, but certainly not least, author/whitewater boater Dan Menten will be coming by to talk about his new book "The New School Guide to Northern California Whitewater."  This is an event co-hosted by California Canoe & Kayak and the California Women's Watersport Collective, which promises a photographic tour of the whitewater in the Six Rivers region of Northern California as well as a discussion of relevant topics and current environmental issues these areas face.

“New School” Dan Menten is an Idaho raised whitewater enthusiast of the highest caliber. Dan started kayaking in 1992 at the age of 11 and has a long history of competitive success in slalom, freestyle and down river racing. Dan is a published author, photographer and videographer, with a degree in Fisheries Biology from Humboldt State University.

We hope to see you there!
