  • Why Shane Loves Kayaking: I started paddling on the class II-III section of the Top Gauley River beside my house when I was 13 and have spent the last 20 years paddling as much as I can.  From the moment I hopped in a boat on the Gauley, paddling swept me away into a world of opportunity, friendship, athleticism, self expression, challenge, and imagination beyond anything else I have ever found.  


  • Crazy Fact about Shane:  I am a High School math teacher in Fayetteville, WV.  After a hard day of teaching math to to my local community I am able to paddle everything from the Dries to Manns Creek.  It makes for a fulfilling lifestyle!
