PC Marty Colbert • PFD’s: Upper Gauley WV, Surf Diagonal Ledges WV, Daddys Creek TN, High water Peshtigo WI, Caught the eddy above Baby Falls Tellico River TN, Surfed Lake Michigan.

Photo: Myself and Bailey Ogle. PC Marty Colbert • Hosted kayaking clinics at our local whitewater park. • Assisted with the Charles City Challenge event, A low water year for the event, but we still had a weekend of whitewater competition with 30 paddlers and 500+ spectators. • Based in NE Iowa, I paddled 91 days and racked up approximately 17,000 miles driven to paddle. My 2018 goals include: • Learning to McNasty. • Working on my nonexistent left side cartwheel. • Helping my good friend Emily Perreault learn to roll her Zen. I am grateful for all of the continued support, thank you! Looking forward to another great year! -Hannah Ray J Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
