Tallulah Fest 2015



The Tallulah is one of the coolest dam released rivers out there. Long slides, great boofs and a pool drop style see’s kayakers of all abilities flocking to this south east classic.

Saturday we got to take a nice leisurely stroll down 600 or so steps and then cruise down the river with a huge crew of new and old friends. I have always wanted to run the Tallulah it’s by no means a big, scary or hard river, it’s just good old fashioned fun and it is awesome to see so many people enjoying there time on the water.


Saturday night played host to the Tallula fest video comp. We got to see so many brilliant videos it must have been incredibly hard for the judges to decide which one was going to take home the $1000 cash prize. My personal favourite was “Resemblance” by local south east charger Dylan Mckinney (see video below). In the end Colin Hunts blend of ridiculous kayaking, chilled tunes and footage from local rivers took the win. With Dylan in second and Ryan Macavoy in third place.

Sunday morning rolled around far too quickly for most and we had to shake of the previous nights celebrations and go for one last blast down the river before heading back home to Asheville.


Huge thanks to all the awesome people that volunteer to make this festival happen, see you all next year.
