Ever since I have got my 2015 Zen, I have brought it to every river I can. I wanted to see how this river runner handled on waterfalls, so I brought it to the Tellico River. Tellico has been one of my favorite rivers ever since I started kayaking. There are so many lines, and the waterfalls make for very good practice.

I have paddled many different boats on the Tellico, but I have never had the confidence to do some of the harder lines in other boats. As soon as I hopped in the Zen, I was doing every line imaginable.

Even though it was freezing outside (literally) it was an amazing weekend with some great friends. It was also my Dads’ first time getting to use his new camera, so we got some sick shots of the new Zen in action!
