We love a good whitewater festival! Especially one in August when it sometimes feels like the season is winding down. Thank you for hosting a great weekend of kayak racing.

Now we are back to our regularly scheduled programming! This week is the final week of our standard summer programs, but we have space in our 3-Day Adult and Youth Kayak classes next week if you are looking to sneak in one more adventure before school starts!

As we head into our last few weeks of the Wave Train Kayak Team season, I wanted to share our gratitude to some of the folks who help make it happen. Montana Whitewater Rafting has been there for us for a long time. They provide a parking lot for our programs to meet in every day in Bozeman. As one of the two permit holders for trips through the Bear Trap canyon, they donate days for us to take our participants through this beautiful wilderness run. It is a privilege to get to show our young paddlers this remote session of river. They help us with access points to our home river, the Gallatin. Finally, we enjoy seeing their smiling faces on the river on a near daily basis.

Thank you, Bill Zell and Montana Whitewater Rafting and Yellowstone Zipline!

We just completed our first youth 3-Day Kayak Class based in Big Sky! We are grateful to those young kayakers who braved the alpine water temperatures and brought there excitement every day!

We had the support of and to make this class a hit.

Wave Train had the opportunity to start two new cohorts of youth paddlers on their kayaking journey last week. One of the things that continues to inspire us is that we get to see the joy and excitement on the faces of our participants as they overcome challenges and experience their first tastes of kayaking. It is such a privilege to share this sport with enthusiastic young people. For the next six weeks, we will paddle with these two groups, in addition to our long time youth paddlers on the rivers of Southwest Montana!

Seeing all the cactus blooming near the river was a good reminder that kayaking is really about the places we get to go and the people we get to share our experiences with. What a treat!

Such beautiful, rainy spring days on the Gallatin river! A big thank you to the whole team today for being so enthusiastic, kind, and helpful as we enjoyed our spectacular backyard!

Our exercise today was for the participants to lead their coaches down a new section of river that they had not seen before other than from the road. They all rose to the occasion and worked as a team to navigate into the unknown!

Why do we call ourselves Wave Train Kayak TEAM? Well, it’s not all fun and games (even if it is mostly fun and games). We try to work toward having our young kayakers take responsibility for their teammates on and off the water. These relationships built on mutual trust and reliance on your teammates for success, and safety, is one of the dynamics, I have always loved about river running.

So, do we compete in kayak competitions? Yes, infrequently. Do we rely on our team to help us when we are in a pinch? Daily.

We have been having some great surf sessions recently with all of our groups! I love the exclamation of joy in this one!

Let us know when you are ready to try out the basics and beyond!

This week we went boat shopping with Gallatin Subaru at Northern Lights Trading Co - Rivers Lakes Oceans to pick out a new kayak to raffle off at this year's Gallatin Whitewater Festival! Follow along to see what the team picked out!

Along with sponsoring the event, Northern Lights is supporting this generous donation from Subaru and making it even sweeter. They will swap you out for a different whitewater kayak (of equal value) if this one is different from your size, style, or color of choice!

Our event sponsors ROCK!

See you on June 24th for the Gallatin Whitewater Festival, 2023!

And just like that, we are on the river and programs are underway! It is so fun to see the boats bouncing down the river ❤️

We have room on some of our 3-day classes if you are ready to try out kayaking!

After covering all the flatwater basics at staff training yesterday, we moved on to a flatwater freestyle clinic. The pond is the place to dial in all the body movements before trying to take them to your local play spots. Coach Brooke is getting very close to sticking loops (a front flip in her kayak)!

Alright folks, registration will be opening up tomorrow morning at 8am!

We are about four weeks out from the day of the event. We hope everyone is enjoying spring runoff and staying safe. The Gallatin has been a lot of fun so far!

We are looking forward to gathering together for a day of celebrating our paddling community.

Wave Train Kayak Team starts on Friday. Which are we going to have this year? Warm sunny skies or snow? It’s always an adventure kayaking in Montana!

Our six week programs are full for this season, but we still have room in the adult and the youth three day classes. Have you ever wondered what it might feel like to bounce down the river in one of those colorful kayaks? We think it’s the best!
