The Pigeon is a class 3-4 river here in TN. It is like the Ocoee but has fewer rapids and deeper channels. It is a quick, warm and easily shuttled run, which makes it perfect for SUP.
Here in the southeast we haven't been using skegs on our boards. We like to boof rocks and run slides which would not be possible with skegs. Everything in this video is done skeg-less.

The boards we use are the Imagine Rapidfire, Emotion Traverse and soon the Badfish MVP.
Enjoy the video and don't forget to go demo some boards at CKS.
