Check out the kayaking only 20 minutes from the beautiful city of Vancouver. Vancouver’s North Shore has three waterways for prime winter whitewater kayaking: Lynn Creek and the Seymour River, on North Vancouver’s east side, and the Capilano.

Eighty Foot falls for Kayakers in Salmon River
Chris Korbulic had spent all day to get to Final Falls and half his life to build the skills he needed to run the last in a series of big drops in the Salmon River Canyon and get a shot of a feeling he can't find anywhere else.

He knew right away in his gut he could run it. He was waiting for the others to get into position in the pool below, in case something went wrong, and memorizing the line he would paddle to get to the exact spot he needed to go over safely.

Boy Scouts, sorority groups, businessmen and veterans will come together for two fundraisers this spring to help a group of kayakers continue their river-borne rehabilitation effort for wounded troops.
