Bio
I grew up in Maiden, NC (near Hickory), but I currently live in Asheville, NC and hope to stay here for a long time. I'm a world traveling, extreme daredevil whose poison of choice happens to be trying to make a living as a professionally sponsored whitewater riverboarder. I also do fitness training, substitute teaching, and commercial riverboard guiding to support myself and numerous quests in search of the most gnarly rapids on earth.

Riverboard guide

Category: Sports / Recreation
Description
Water is powerful, invigorating, and refreshing, and experiencing whitewater as it crashes down the mountains and over rocks in the riverbed is a great thrill and challenge. Some prefer to kayak or raft, but I'd rather experience it at face level. Bring your friends and a go for it attitude and come with me down the river. I'll outfit you with a riverboard, helmet, wetsuit, knee pads, pfd, and fins and introduce you to this exhilarating sport. Riverboarding involves laying on your stomach and swimming down the river on a specially designed board (picture a beefed up bodyboard). It is basically bodyboarding meets whitewater. It can be as safe or extreme as you choose, and contrary to perception is actually very safe because of all the safety gear that you wear to be prepare to be in the water the entire time. Other whitewater sports let you sit above the water. Riverboarding lets you be in the water. Come see and feel the difference with Appalachian Riverboard Company.
