30 Lakes in 30 Days Flathead Lake Montana

SUP Magazine (1 hour ago) - You’ll never paddle a more mind-boggling geological feature than Montana’s Flathead Lake. Forget that its surface area of nearly 200 square miles makes it the country’s largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi. Its distinction comes from being a remnant of an ancient, 3,000-square-mile, glacially dammed lake called Missoula, caused by a 2,000-foot-high wall of ice blocking the Clark Fork River.  read more...

North Fork Championships

Jackson Kayak (4 hrs. ago) - The NFC is one of the coolest and most visually impressive events I have been to. Imagine taking a class 5 rapid, throw some of the worlds top paddlers in to race it, I know this sounds familiar, but now add some slalom gates to make the course almost impossible, this is the North Fork Championships.
