The 6th annual Nantahala Open is this Saturday. And we cannot wait!
From Bryan Kirk heading up Team Wave Sport and Team ERA, to the all-day fun at the Falls captured on camera and video by Brian and Kelly, to the evening fun of fresh beverages from the Nantahala Brewing Company accompanied by the sound of some local blue grass music and a screening of the days’ footage at nightfall…. the Nantahala Open will again champion the fun that can be had in a non-competitive event at a favorite rapid where everyone is encouraged to participate—either running the rapid or walking around it cheering for your friends.
The event would not happen without the help of Team Wave Sport and our incredibly loyal event sponsors (all of whom have been supporting you the boater for the past six years). Prizes are overflowing and already include:
Cam Straps Float bags Dry Bag Paddle Bag Duffel Bag Throw Rope Co-Pilot Knife from Northwest River Supply (NRS); WRSI’s Helmet and 2 Hail Mary Throw Ropes; Shred Ready Helmets’ Vixen and Shaggy helmets; Snapdragon Spray Skirts’ Flirt Skirt and WW Reinforced Skirt ; Stohlquist Waterwear contribution of one of their new Descent PFDs;a zipl line ride for two from Nantahala Gorge Canopy Tours; a rewarding 50-min Spa service from the Nantahala Village and Resort; awesome schwag from Sweet Helmets; a huge collectin of tees from Fluid Kayaks;topped off by Nantahala Brewing Company’s frothy beverages…and of course Wavesport’s grand prize boat of choice.
If you still don’t know what’s going on, check the blog.
And come with a few extra bucks to buy extra raffle tickets (prize is the Wave Sport boat) because we want to beat last year’s $321.00 donation to Team River Runner!
Hope to see you on Saturday!
your friends at Endless River Adventures and Team Wave Sport
