Texas Water Safari Questions
Posted July 11th, 2013 - 2:40 pm by from Salt Lake City, United States (Permalink)
Hello fellow Texans,

I heard about a crazy kayaking race that you have there each year. The Texas Water Safari. I really want to do it but I know there is A LOT of practice that needs to be done. I was just wondering if there is anyone knowledgeable about this race.

Q:

-Whats the best way to train for kayaking 60/day?
-Would anyone want to do this race with or alongside me? I already have one person who is 100% in but it would be nice to be with people who are more familiar with the river :D
-Whats the best piece of advice you have?
-Do you know anyone who has completed the race that might not be on CS?
-Any other groups I could sure for a Safarian???

Thank You :)

shocking. i really cant recall the last time, if ever, that someone posted something shocking in the tx groups (present author excluded).

but this is for real. i am amazed. albeit my masochism favors falling off mountainsides or running from spear chunking cannibal pygmies while circumventing molten lava flows.

this is just pain. if there were no dumb rapids (boring) & it was in winter, i would be down. being in water in heat or under sun just dont make sense to me.
