SUP enthusiasts should join us this July for a multi-day SUP adventure down the Rogue River. The Class II/III rapids and warm water of the Rogue River are perfect for stand up paddleboarding.
Length: 38 miles / 4 days
Dates: July 10 - 13, 2014
Includes: Professional guides, exceptional food, transportation to and from Galice, and all equipment
Bring your own inflatable board or we'll outfit you with everything you'll need. Starting with instruction and a short warm up on flat water, you'll paddle through some easy Class II rapids before reaching the first big rapid of the day: Grave Creek Falls. You can give the more challenging rapids a try on your knees or hop aboard one of the support rafts that will also transport our food and camping equipment for the trip. As you travel downriver you'll gain the maneuvers and balance you'll need to take on the many Class II rapids and, depending on your skill level, attempt the more difficult Class III rapids.
Over the course of four days we'll make our way down the wild Rogue River and camp along the river each night. In camp the NWRC guides will put together fabulous meals while you enjoy the splendor of the Rogue.
Jen Kjellesvik of Adventure Fitness Bend will join us for additional SUP instruction and guiding. Jen is a long time river guide and now focuses on whitewater SUP and SUP fitness.
