A Chance to Build Confidence

Sarah Tingey | Grand Canyon, Lava

I love rivers, but paddling whitewater is not something that comes to me naturally. I’m proud of how far I’ve come with my paddling abilities since I began boating in 2001. For years I only paddled flat water, but as I’ve met wonderful new friends through my river community they have encouraged, and mentored me, as I’ve pushed myself to expand the types of water I’m comfortable paddling. I now look forward to mentoring other women, and helping them build confidence to realize that they’re totally capable of running rapids – and that they’re fun!
