Everyone starts kayaking somewhere
Kayak season means everything to me, especially the freestyle competitions. I love traveling around the state going to competitions and competing. But most of all, I love the fact that I get to meet new people and kayak with them. This year I plan to make most of the kayak competitions. My favorite competitions would have to be Steamboat, Lyons, FIBArk, and Gunnison. I hope to make The Teva Games even though I will not compete. Other than that I really don’t have any other plans that I know of.

This year will be the first year that our kayak mentor Evan Ross will not be here to kayak with us. Over the past two years Evan has taught us so much about kayaking. He guided us (me my sister and Sage Kitson) down every part of the Arkansas River and drove us around at least twice a week to kayak.

Kayak season means the start of the booty stink (which my parents hate with a PASSION!!!), beading water drops on a brand new drytop, and getting the adrenaline rush of hitting your first loop or hitting a perfect line, and every time that happens you know that is why you kayak.
