One of the best things about whitewater rafting is that it appeals to all levels of sportsmen, ranging from the new rafter, to the world-class veteran. The United States is home to a variety of different whitewater courses, ranging from beginner to international level difficulty. What this means is that up and coming rafters have ample opportunities to learn the techniques of the water – no matter where in the US they reside. What it also means is that the serious rafter has the opportunity to work hard and to potentially become a member of one of the best whitewater teams in the world.
This year will be no different from those past, with a number of events both within and outside of the US that are sure to satisfy both spectators and exhibitors alike. Keep reading for a summary of a few our favorite annual events designed to test the best in the sport.
