The Canoe Guru

It's another story of a river runner making a living as a river runner. If you're in the SE and want to learn any level of canoeing from a really sweet guy for a decent price, this is the guy to go to. Eli Helbert can do things in a canoe that are beyond most people's imaginations. I know him because we used to work together occasionally on an assortment of rivers around the southeast. I like to paddle the big boats standing up too--though I prefer to have a very long kayak paddle for standing.

On these days, canoes look different. That's still Eli in there.
He was the world champion rodeo canoer in 1999. Not sure what else. He always was good.

Here he is surfing in a hole that I would go AROUND:
