The eighth-annual Nantahala Open will take place from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturday, April 21, at Nantahala Falls. Nantahala Open is for all boaters no matter their experience or ability.
The event is being put together by Endless River Adventures and Team Wave Sport.
This is not a “sponsored” event; the participants are typically Nantahala boaters and those who just enjoy a great day of fun on the river.
The Endless River team will be joined by Nantahala Open veteran and team wave sport leader Bryan Kirk and others. The group will coordinate the event from the launching pad at Nantahala Falls, with video cameras arranged to film open participants. Categories include such events as best freestyle through the falls, best top hole move and much more.
