Nantahala River, North Carolina
The Nantahala Open has gained the reputation as a fun competition; open to all boaters no matter the experience or ability, consisting of categories for every skill level–and the prizes that go along with them!
Anyone and everyone is welcome to participate! The Event takes place at Nantahala Falls on the Nantahala River, between 10AM and 3PM. Team Wave Sport and Endless River Adventures staff will be at the staging area above the Falls. Stop by the staging area above the Falls and confirm that you want to participate. It’s as easy as that.
Following the day’s event, Wave Sport and Endless River Adventures invite everyone to an Open House after-party with music and beverages and a screening of the day’s footage at Endless River Adventures.
