Last Wed evening saw a great crew come out to compete in a slalom type race on the south channel of the Reno White Water Park.  5 months into the 2017 water year and we have already broken the record for most precipitation since records have been kept.  For example, last year we had about 500 cfs for our first throwdown, on Wed it was 5,000 cfs and has been for over a month.

2017 HTTD Season kicks off April 26th

tommygunn wrote 283 days ago:


It’s that time again…

Hometown Throwdown Season

This year we have already had more precipitation than any other year in recorded history in the Northern Sierra so flows will be high throughout the summer.  With that in mind we are going to go a bit longer this year and hold events through June.  So grab your friends, dust off the paddling gear, and meet us in two weeks to kick things off.  HTTD will start at 5-530pm on Wednesdays every two weeks.

  • April 26th –  Reno Whitewater Park  –  Slalom Survivor Race
  • May 10th — TBD
  • May 24th — TBD
  • June 7th — TBD
  • June 21st — TBD

Because flows will be changing a lot this season, we will be adjusting the event type and location as we go. So check back in for information on the next event.  As always Colin has worked to get great sponsors for World Kayak in 2017, this year we already have lots of great gear from:

  • Jackson Kayak
  • Mountain Khakis
  • Ninkasi
  • Accent Paddles
  • IR
  • Kokatat
  • Effort Inc.
  • Astral

Remember that we will always have lots of great beer from Ninkasi Brewing.

See you on the 26th!!!!!

Final Reno HTTD of 2016

tommygunn wrote 585 days ago:


After 3 years of low to no water…

2016 saw five great Hometown throwdowns, an awesome US Freestyle championships at the Reno River Festival, and the return of everyone’s favorite creek runs in the Sierras.  World Kayak hosts events around the world but here in Reno we’ve seen a great comradery built from these events over the past few years. One of the big drivers of this has been the support of Ninkasi Brewery, who has provided specialty libations that keeps everyone hanging out for hours after each throwdown.

This year we had 3 freestyle events at the Reno whitewater park and 2 races at the Floriston rapids.  The final event involved the sum of 2 runs down the 2-minute course which involved a backwards ferry across the river, mandatory gate and big boof at the crux of the run.
