Nantahala Attainment | Pyranha 12R

Attaining upstream is about the easiest social distancing type of whitewater paddling we can do right now. No shuttle needed and no contact with others. But it’s a heck of a great physical and technical workout. Learn the attainment lines on the Nantahala River as I walk you up stream in my Pyranha Kayaks 12R from the freestyle hole at the Nantahala Outdoor Center, all the way up to Nantahala Falls.

While North Carolina continues to have a Stay Home, Stay Safe order in place, we are allowed to exercise outside while respecting all other safety precautions, like social distancing. I’m lucky to live just a few minutes from the Nantahala river, attaining requires no shuttle and therefore no contact with any other person and lastly, I have been attaining on this section of the Nantahala for decades and the whitewater is well within my technical abilities. If you can’t say the same, Stay Home and Stay Safe!
