Rogue River SUP
The Rogue River in Oregon is a classic. Fishermen and whitewater enthusiasts have been boating the river for decades. Paddle boarding the Wild & Scenic section with its numerous ClassII-IV rapids is a new form of river adventure.
I have had the opportunity to paddle it on a board now three separate times. Once as a SUP-support trip with overnight gear tethered to the board. That is my typical way. But the last couple of times it has been raft supported, and I have to say, I like it.
Raft-support allows for a more casual pace, the ability to explore more rapids, and invite more friends along.
Here is a video clip (Rogue River SUP ) from a recent early Autumn run with my wife Angelique, fellow Hala team rider Covey Baack, and the folks from Sawyer Station based in Gold Hill. Enjoy!
