Duo the fun
The last time I ran the Cheoah River I went for a ride in Jackson kayak’s: Dynamic Duo. My partner in crime, Burton Greer, and I put on the Cheoah River for its second release this year. A Class IV+ river full of hydraulics, wave trains, and boofs.
A duo is a two-person kayak, it’s such a long boat that it takes a lot of power to get where you need to go, especially in class IV waters. So teamwork is key, and communication a must.
Burton and I had no trouble until the very end of the run. We flipped and tried to both roll, then ended up swimming because we were unable to get upright. Looking back at the situation we both laugh and say we had too much confidence going into it. Next time!
