Celebrating the Women of whitewater!

For international women’s day 2018 we decided to showcase some of our stories and interviews featuring the women of whitewater from all around the world. Featuring world champions, ace photographers and more, this is our celebration of the awesome women of the whitewater world:

First off, back in 2017 we had an interview with the awesome Hanieh from Iran, a top class raft guide.
