Go Rafting

Summer is in full effect and California's rivers are roaring. It's a great time of year to try rafting. White water rafting is one of the best ways to spend a hot summer day. It's a great thing to do with family and friends or co-workers and chances are there's a killer river not to far from where ever your at. You can float down a mellow class 2 or 3 and check out the canyon walls, wildflowers and wildlife or fish. Or you can get the heart pumping a bit with some class 4 rapids like i did last week on the North Fork of the American River. Check out this little promo video i put together for O.A.R.S. with the help of Steve Markle their marketing director, his wife Nicole, Lauren De Remer, the trusty O.A.R.S. guides and a great group of clients.

The North Fork of the American is an intense class 4 run through a seldom visited Wild and Scenic canyon just outside of Auburn and right off the Hwy 80.

O.A.R.S. is a great company that offers rafting trips on some of California's best white water as well as other incredible destinations around the world. Stay tuned for some video from Fiji soon.

Summer is really the best season to do rafting! You need a flowing river with a harsh current to go rafting. Good thing there are people who help others learn these sports!
