This past weekend myself and three other friends packed in a large “sex-terra” for a multi-day trip up North to find some new runs that we’ve never paddled.

My First Post . . .

This is my first post for Pyranha Kayaks but I have been affiliated with this company for some time now.  Working for the U.S. distributor in Asheville this past summer was an amazing experience and I learned a lot about the industry.  Boating in Asheville taught me to take advantage of the local creeks and …
