Ohio Whitewater Kayaking Clinic


Ohio Whitewater Kayaking Skills Clinic

When was the last time you thought about whitewater kayaking outside of New Mexico? I bet Ohio was not on the list. But what most people don’t realize is that there is a stash of whitewater in Ohio that runs throughout the year. It is a great place to learn the fundamentals, and work up through the intermediate techniques of whitewater kayaking.  MST Adventures is offering a 3 day Ohio Whitewater Kayaking Experience this April 21-23, 2017. We will explore the paddling scene in and around the greater Cleveland area, and depending on the local water levels and collective group experience; we will have an opportunity to get on another East Coast classic the Lower Youghiogheny River, just outside of Pittsburg, PA.
