Well, prelims are a day away and the excitement is building as the mighty Garburator wave just gets better and better. Wilderness Tours has been kind enough to host the entire first-ever World Cup’s first event this weekend.

Paddlers have arrived from all over the world to train. The line-ups are
long, even with night-lighting to allow paddling 24 hours a day! Enjoy a
few photos from Friday–my last day of coaching with the Keeners. What a great summer, and what a great place to paddle!
