Video | Charging Rapids on the Lower Deschutes

Oregon is a paradise for river SUP with countless rivers twisting and turning through beautiful scenery and tall trees. The Lower Deschutes River is certainly no exception and is a favorite among the whitewater crowd. You can paddle for a 100 miles down the river and encounter everything from quiet flatwater to demanding class III rapids. Paul Clark is one of the best when it comes to the “Lower D” as evidenced by this drone footage. He maneuvers his SUP over drops and through rushing rapids without wiping out. The added motivation to stay dry supplied by surrounding snow caps and frigid water may have helped him stick his runs. But we’ll go ahead and chalk it up to skill anyway.
