New Guide Book to Northwest Whitewater Hits Shelves

- Advertisment -

Now you never have another excuse for getting lost on shuttle or getting in over your head on a whitewater run in the Northwest. For that, you can thank Nick Hinds, Scott Waidelich, Ryan Scott and Jacob Cruser, whose new “Paddling Pacific Northwest Whitewater” will leave you telling great tales at the bar instead of excuses for being late to your spouse…

A long time coming, “Paddling Pacific Northwest Whitewater” was a community-based project that focuses on Class III through V+ whitewater located in the states of Washington and Oregon. With 438 pages of beautiful photographs and logistics information, it will help you better plan any paddling trip to the Northwest.

“It was a lot of work to put together, but we think it’s the best guidebook to the region there is,” says Hinds, who, combined with the other authors, has paddled the majority of the book’s runs. “It tells how to get there, what flow levels are best, what the main rapids are and more. If you’re paddling up here, you shouldn’t leave home without it. Plus, it’s oversized so the photos really stand out and gives it a long lasting appeal.”

The authors tapped all of their local paddling experts to divulge the details on each run’s characteristics and challenges, providing an unequivocal snapshot at the best paddling in the region. Each run is explained by its local keeper, giving you a great start on research and answering many questions before they arise.

The 8 .5”x11” coffee-table-sized book also includes detailed maps of each region in both states to give river runners an idea of distances between runs (and how to best link twofers on the weekend). Detailed state maps round out the package, giving a bird’s-eye view of every major (and minor) whitewater option in Washington, Oregon, and the Columbia River Gorge (covered in its own two chapters, thanks to contributor and longtime Gorge boater Ryan Scott). The retail price at a local kayak shop or book store is $39.99.
