Fayettechill kayaker Jake Newcomb had a blast kayaking with some friends recently out on Richland Creek. While he was at it he field-tested our newest, “Mongrel,” board shorts and had great things to say about the shorts. The stormy Spring weather has made for some great flow on the rivers and some fantastic waterfalls. Now is the best time of the year to be out on any of the Ozarks’ countless rivers for a day of kayaking, canoeing, or straight floating with a cooler and a group of your friends. If you are looking for more information on how to get out on one of the Ozark rivers, please e-mail We’ll see you out there!
