Nantahala River, NC
The Nantahala is going big-time this September 7-9th, as top international paddlers arrive to compete in the 2012 Freestyle World Cup Final. This winter’s enhancement to the Nantahala freestyle feature, including the construction of the 2013 Wave have made the Nantahala a legitimate destination for the world’s elite freestyle competitors, and this summer, they’re headed here to try out the wave prior to next year’s World Championship.
Athletes will begin to arrive the week before the event, and will be training on the 2013 Wave throughout September 3-6th. Competition will begin on September 7th with the Preliminary heats, Semifinals and Finals will take place over the weekend.
Friday and Saturday, join us after the competition for live music at the Pourover Pub. Enjoy craft beer, hot snacks, night events, and more!
