I started my paddling career driving 3 hours to the city of Columbus, Georgia regularly to paddle with my friend Hunter Katich on the mighty Chattahoochee River. Columbus had just a short section of whitewater right beside the downtown area of the city. Over the past few years a lot of work has been done to make Columbus one of the most amazing whitewater destinations I have ever been to. The only problem was it was 3 hours from my home! Luckily nowadays I am in the middle of my first year in College at Auburn University and only 45 minutes away from the hooch. Here is a video from an average day at the Chattahoochee, showcasing just a small amount of what Columbus has to offer. I also included a video from the old days just for fun of us out paddling in Columbus. Did I mention the huge spotlights that turn on every night on the rapids now? Come check it out and paddle with us truly anytime of day!
