If it’s paddling your passionate about then the East Coast Canoe and Kayak Festival is where it’s at. With over 70 exhibitors the festival offers the opportunity for novices and experts to demo a variety of boats, as well as take classes on and off water. We’d like to thank our hosts, the Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission for taking such good care of us and putting on an amazing event. The James Island County Park where the event took place is a beautiful facility complete with a water park, trails, ropes course, and the tallest climbing wall in the state of South Carolina. The 50’ climbing wall offers climbing for all skill levels and the friendly park staff are happy to belay you.
We offered several awareness workshops tailored to coastal environments, and sea kayaking. It was shocking to here from so many paddlers how must trash they have to deal with along the shoreline, with that said, it was refreshing to here those same folks say that they make the effort clean up after others who seem to lack the knowledge of how detrimental littering can be. Till next time…
