The annual Clearwater Kayak Festival in British Columbia saw rowdy water levels and high attendance on August 5-7, according to organizers.
Since 2013, the Clearwater Festival has been held in memoriam of its original visionary Ben Earle. The event has grown since to feature the Adrian Kiernan boatercross race, a freestyle event on the Pink Mountain Wave, whitewater SUP racing, and clinics for novice paddlers. And there’s the namesake Ben Earle Award, going to a paddler at the event who most embodies the festival.
A portion of proceeds from the annual Clearwater Kayak Festival are also donated to First Descents, the organization assisting long-term survivorship of young adults impacted by cancer and other health conditions through outdoor experiences.
