Paddle Safety

June 21, 2018 by mike swope

It’s always a concern during the summer months….

And Thank to Commander Day of the USGCA we have something to help you stay safe and be seen while paddling…..

It’s hard to see from the photo but these are reflective paddle stickers……they are just under 4 inches across and affix to the paddle tip so they are visible and reflective from both sides…

It also has a cool peel and stick safety checklist to put on you boat as a visual reminder too.

BUT wait. thats not all….

The back has 10 safety considerations……so its handy before you puck the stickers and its handy after too.

We have a limited supply so its 1st come 1st serve…

Send you name & address to

Text message. 214 669 1663


And we will mail yours today!

Happy Birthday Ladies!!!

We appreciate you hanging with KPC for some EFF…Elm Fork FUN!

And so it starts…

Add some cool clear water and..

There you go…

We had some fun at the number 1 tree rapid..and its almost runable on river right…but better be able to make more than one move to get thru.

Or be paddling a WW kayak!

We also made it to shale beach..

Which at 319 CBS it perfect

Made that short walk to the other end….

And just like magic we washed out troubles…..downstream!

And doing this….

Makes you fill like this…..

Really…I’m not kidding…

So join us in July of you want to go from this…

To this

Thank Steve and Karen for the pics too!

You bet!

In fact lots of them…those really cool folks that share the values of ecology and science and the most basic of the human existence and curiosity of the natural world we inhabit.

And bonus they like kayaking too!

And boy did we knock them over

With a fun river eco tour!

And we even found a little time to

Practice our jedi river tricks

“These are not the floating kayakers your are looking for!”

…….these are

Side note …at 471 cfs the box trap rapid just past the RR bridge is still a handfull… the left run is open but it completely blocked 40 yards down stream so start left then move center to stay in the high oxygen enviroment!

Check back for all the photos of the fun and good times from our friends and THE friends of LLELA!

Next LLELA run 3rd Sat in June!
