Tucson/Phoenix area?

Anyone in the Tucson or Phoenix AZ area? I want to talk to someone about trying a little whitewater (I think?). Maybe not. I really know absolutely nothing, ask anyone on this board, lol. But I have an idea to float, so :man_shrugging:

your best bet is to hook up with a paddling club- ww is best done in small groups- shuttles, safety, etc. here’s a website that might have some links: http://southwestpaddler.com/
too often folks drive somewhere to take lessons but have a hard time following up because they are not part of a paddling community. Perhaps you could hook up with these folks http://soazpaddlers.org/
