“Kayaking allows you to escape the day-to-day routine, to meet people, to experience thrills, to face technical challenges, and simply to relax in the outdoors. Feeling your body and mind work and play with the river is spiritually refreshing. Kayaking makes you feel vibrant; it both nourishes the body and stimulates the mind.”
