The weather has finally warmed up to the point where it is safe to paddle without a wet suit.
A little tired of my flat water workouts, I decided to head to the Rivanna River at Darden Towe Park and paddle upstream the last 3 or so miles of the race route for the annual Rivanna River Race (May 11 this year) and then turn around and head back.
After a long winter of flat water training it was great to get back onto some flowing water.
The gauge at Palmyra was ~2500cfs due to some heavy rain overnight so paddling upstream was challenging but provided an awesome workout.
Forget downwind and downriver paddling on surfskis, I think the future is in up-river paddling.
And the Nelo 510 surfski is an awesome boat for up-river training.
