According to our friends and partners over at Colorado Kayak Supply, longboats are having their moment. Especially given that it’s fall and some of the best and least crowded boating and best whitewater events take place this time of year.

CKS Online kicked off longboat season with a self-support kayak trip through the Grand Canyon — and last week recapped the Russell Fork and Lord of the Fork Race.
