Where: USA, NC, Nantahala, NOC

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.

Consruction of the 2013 Wave was made possible through a generous grant by the Golden Leaf Foundation, and through a community focused effort led by the The Nantahala Gorge Organizing Committee, the Swain County Chamber of Commerce, Swain TDA, Smoky Mountain Host, USACK, and ICF. Since its grand opening on December 16th, 2011, athletes and engineers have been working together to fine-tune the wave shaper, creating a state of the art competitive feature that will continue to be a training spot and a community gathering place long after the 2013 event for which it was constructed.

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!
