Also, in Pineville, there are some great surf waves by the walking bridge near the grade school.
304-923-3403 is my number if you ever want to go boating there.

There is an alternative to this run on the Dotte. The put in is just above Pineville, go towards
Mullens. The put in is just before New Richmond. You will see a swinging bridge that crosses the
river. The put in is just beside that. You can email me at if you need more
information. I lived approximately 18 years in this region.
