‘World of Adventure’ hits the whitewater in Bend, OR

This week on “World of Adventure,” athlete Angel Collinson and crew make a trip to the whitewater rafting and surfing scene in Bend, Oregon.

Local rafting company Sun Country Tours and its guides know the waters of Bend like the backs of their hands, and they give Collinson a firsthand experience on the river.

Along with rafting, the Bend Whitewater Park is a popular intermediate-level attraction for visitors and locals alike, giving participants a taste of what whitewater is all about.

“Designing waves and shaping them — it really is an art,” says Ryan Richards, a wave shaper at the park. “There are local paddling groups, local surfing groups and whitewater groups that have been envisioning this happening for literally over a decade.”
