Have you been tuning into our weekly interviews with Caballeros del Rio or Gentlemen of the River. Walter, Arnaldo, and Jason have been interviewing Costa Rican whitewater paddlers that have revolutionized the sport within Costa Rica and the world.
Check out the series on our Facebook or our YouTube pages and hear about paddling in the 80s on the Reventazon River, learning to kayak in a motorcycle helmet, and the brains behind the International Rafting Federation.
Listen to the English teacher who inspires her students and empowers young women on the river. Hear about first descents and the naming of rapids. Listen to stories of Olympic athletes, world travelers, and teachers of some of the world’s best paddlers. Have you stayed at an eco-lodge along the Pacuare River? One of our Gentlemen revolutionized the concept of riverside eco-lodges. We have loved interacting with these Gentlemen (and Lady) and hope that these interviews will help inspire the next generation of whitewater paddlers in Costa Rica as well as provide some entertainment for our long days at home.
