Congratulations to Jimmy Holcombe!


For over 40 years, Jimmy has been teaching all aspects of paddling at the Nantahala Outdoor Center in western North Carolina.  Instruction at NOC started in the summer of 1973. “We were teaching three day courses for Outward Bound in 17 foot Grumman canoes. The first two days were spent on the Little Tennessee and the last day on the Nantahala. We taught our first kayak course in the summer of 1975.”
His favorite boat is the Hahn C-1, a 13’2” fiberglass boat which he used to bag first descents on Stekoa Creek and Slick Rock Creek, plus early descents on the Green Narrows and the Cullasaja.
