Prerequisites – The Flow Fest on water challenges are designed for experienced paddlers looking to paddle the newest whitewater kayaks.  If you have never been in a whitewater kayak before, you should try one of our 1-, 2-, 3- or 5-day beginner clinics.

  • Fife Brook Challenge Course: Great for experienced kayakers and open to those who have mastered the wet-exit, can self rescue in current, and are comfortable in at least class I-II whitewater with a sprayskirt and a whitewater style kayak.
  • Dryway Challenge Course: Dryway competent paddlers should be able to roll reliably and consistently in Class III rapids & effectively perform eddy turns, peel outs, ferries, and self rescues in Class III+ whitewater.

Come to Zoar Outdoor and learn to paddle prior to Flow Fest
