Confidence Series

Paddle in Pink is proud to announce an all new women only kayaking series: Confidence Series. This series is to motivate and encourage women to push their limits of kayaking, to learn, to laugh and be surrounded by an all women’s support network. The first event is going to take place on Saturday, May 16th at the Cheoah River near Robbinsville, NC.

Sadly Boater Chick Festival will not take place this year and therefore¬†Nikki, Erin and Crystal are organizing a group Cheoah paddle. We’ll have several groups with trip leaders and safety boaters. We’re thinking a down river trip on Saturday, followed by a friendly, girls-only “race” with a network of safety boaters set up.

We will finish up the series in June doing an all girls playboating clinic/comp. Watch Facebook and Paddle in Pink for more details.


I started kayaking in Wisconsin of all places, because this is where I am from. I then moved to San Diego and took on kayak surfing along with heading to the Kern River when water was available. I then made the move to Asheville, NC and have been hooked on this sport since my Wisconsin days. With whatever it is that you do, do it because you love it, not because society tells you should or for other outside factors. Don't simply exist, live!
