This is the 55th episode of the SUPPAUL Podcast.
We're talking with Meghan Christian about our "nemesis rapids," those features on the river where we don't always succeed running the first time we attemt them. We think about them, analyze the video footage, study the lines, and even dream about them.
Can we succeed in our own terms?
My nemesis rapid was the Notch in Big Eddy on the Deschutes River near Bend, Oregon. That was a couple year project.
Meghan's is currently what I call the "photographer's rapid" on the Nantahala River here in North Carolina.
We talk aslo about river ratings and how they differ depending on what craft we are paddling. A Class3 for a kayak may be more or less difficult on a paddle board.
Reach out, tell us your nemesis rapids.
