Editor’s Note


When Utah’s temperatures skyrocket, there’s no better way to cool off than playing in the water. For me, this summer has been filled with three new watersport experiences! I’ve rafted the Green and Colorado Rivers, wakeboarded at Lake Powell and learned how to roll a kayak…sort of. This photo was taken just after my first practice session with my friend Camine; she’s an excellent kayaker and instructor! I still can’t roll perfectly, but where I’m at now is a big improvement from where I started…upside down. Ready to learn to roll a kayak for yourself? Visit our website at sportsguidemag.com for a list of kayak rolling class.

If you’re looking to try a new activity before summer ends, but kayaking isn’t your thing, don’t worry. In this issue you’ll find all the information you need to get started in river rafting, wakeboarding, family camping and more. What’s your favorite summer activity? Email me about it. One lucky respondent will be chosen to win a prize.
