Dave Slover has worked in paddlesports and the outdoors all his adult life. It all started as a troubled youth sent outdoors by his parents, the passion developed and lead to work for Outward Bound in the 70’s, raft guiding and whitewater kayaking in California, Oregon, Zimbabwe and Australia in the 80’s and starting his Alder Creek Kayak & Canoe career in the early 90’s. For 14 years Dave and Suzi owned and operated All Star Rafting and then in 2004 came back to Alder Creek as owner when we bought the business from Steve, Cindy and Keith.
Time is now spent running the kayak store, sharing his outdoors passion with new people all the time. As a husband to Suzi and father of Joey (age 18) he also leads scout trips for Troop 282 in Hood River, Oregon.
Dave is also an accomplished Alaskan adventurer. With a band of old college buddies the team of Whitewater Bandits have explored all over the State. Trips have included the Charley/Yukon, Alsek, Happy, Aniakchak, Kobuk, Italio and Hula Hula rivers.
