Western North Carolina’s well known for some of the best whitewater kayaking on the east coast, but Stand Up Paddleboarding and kayak fishing have grown into sizable sports of their own over the past few years. Try out the latest models in all three categories on the still waters of Lake Julian and chat with industry experts about paddles, boating accessories, and the best spots in the region to get on the water this year. We’ll have PFDs for adults and kids, but if you bring your own, there will be far less time spend waiting.
