P7120232 (800x600)It seems like every year around this time the Beginner paddle starts taking off. Lots of beginners out and most of them gaining confidence. About half the group did the ferry over at the put in and tried the more aggressive eddy along with a few going out and start trying to surf. I noticed more contacts being exchange as they are starting to gain enough confidence and skills to meet up and do a run in between our scheduled runs.

With the next Throwdown fast approaching I think most of these beginners will be out trying to rack up some points and get some great prizes.
