Meet Joel Wenblad, an avid R1 & R2 (one person and two-person paddle raft) rafter based out of Golden, Colorado, right on the banks of Clear Creek. His favorite thing about rafting is the incredible community you find around rivers. Joel tries to grow this community by attending local paddling events and supporting American Whitewater as much as possible. He was also part of YAW THE MOVIE!
