Rapid Transit Video #10: North Alabama Whitewater Festival & Post-Activities on Little River Canyon

Oh, the NAWF was a good time this year as usual, but a tid bit nipply out. This report is going up quite late but hey, at least it’s here now. To explain more, NAWF is the North Alabama Whitewater Festival. 2008 was the fourth year of this successful, deep south whitewater festival and championship. NAWF activities include a waterfall freestyle and boater-x at Short Creek Falls and a freestyle, hole comp at the Locust Fork of the Warrior River. Andy Gates and I headed down for this year’s event.
