We are excited to announce our first winner, Sara Cress!
“I am from Charlotte, North Carolina and love spending time paddling whitewater at the US National Whitewater Center. I am fortunate to live close enough to the center that you will find me out there multiple times a week running laps. I found Bellyak at a conference in 2016 where I met Adam and immediately knew prone paddling was for me. Using a Bellyak allowed me to learn to read water and tackle rapids up close with a much smaller learning curve than traditional boats. My first time out I was surfing waves face first which is an experience like no other. I love meeting other prone paddlers and would be happy to meet up with anyone looking to paddle at the USNWC!”
