Pro whitewater paddle board staff from the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC and Riverside Outfitters in Richmond, VA got together last week to take boards into section 3 and 4 of the wild and scenic Chattooga River on the border of South Carolina and Georgia. Section 3 is class 2-3 abd has been run multiple times by paddle boarders. It's a great warm-up for section 4, which is class 4+. Section 4 had never been attempted on a paddleboard until these gnarly paddlers; Trey Knight, Dave Hepp, Ben Moore, Attila Takats, and Mitch Davis dropped into the gorge last week. After two days of paddling, all but 3 Rapids had been cleaned by the group.
