GUNTERSVILLE — Lake Guntersville was featured on the most recent season of “Facing Waves”, a travel paddling show on Bally Sports Southeast.
The episode was carried locally on Aug. 6, 7, 9 and 12. Condensed versions can be seen on PaddleTV on YouTube.
The show was sponsored in part by Marshall County Tourism & Sports, promoting Lake Guntersville and surrounding communities.
“Facing Waves” is an exciting, outdoor adventure television show that follows world-renowned paddler Ken Whiting as he travels across the world discovering different waterways and cultures,” the organization said in news release. “Facing Waves” is broadcast into more than 120 million US households through Outside TV, and the Bally regional sports networks.”
Whiting and the production crew came to Lake Guntersville in April to film the show, the release said. He paddled through Morgan’s Cove, Guntersville Dam and discovered Painted Bluff and Hambrick Bat Cave.
“He also tried his hand at kayak fishing Lake Guntersville, which is best known for its large-mouth bass,” according to the release. The crew dined at local restaurants and “adventured on land to some of our best-known attractions, including Cathedral Caverns State Park.”
