Jonny could be in over his head this time. In this wild adventure, he hauls up to Otter Bar Lodge in Forks of Salmon in northern California’s Shasta Cascade region to get a crash course in kayaking from pro whitewater kayaker Rush Sturges and Junior Freestyle Champion Sage Donnelly. From his first time in a kayak, to a raging river in a few hours. The only question is how will Jonny keep from going under?
Kayaking in Shasta isn’t the only place to feel the thrill of whitewater in California. Check out these other amazing river rafting adventures. And read more about what Jonny loves about the Golden State in his California Questionnaire.
