Jose Nunez is a Big Fan of the Pikes Peak Whitewater Club
We're big fans of Jose Nunez!
Jose Nunez of Colorado Springs said it was difficult to learn to kayak, but joining the Pikes Peak Whitewater Club helped him learn the skills to tangle with the rapids. "For me, learning was hard because I weight 253 pounds," he said. "I lack flexibility, but what I lack in athletic ability I make up in pure determination."
