The North Fork Championship is a competition built to expose the talent of the best kayakers in the world on an amazing piece of whitewater. The NFC is one of our six favorite whitewater kayak events in North America. Previous years’ top 10 finishers vote on athletes that apply to race in the main event, however to support up and comers it is setup so any charger has the opportunity to come win it all. With three races, the Melt Awards Film and Photo Festival, and top shelf parties along the way the NFC brings to you the freshest of what the world of kayaking has to offer.
