A Great Night at Corbin Wave

james wrote 245 days ago:


We had a large turnout of over 15 boaters and the levels were perfect for Wednesday Nights Throw Down at Corbin Wave. For many it was their first time getting in the water and playing at Corbin and the energy in the water was full of excitement. There were three main events designed to be fun yet push all of the paddlers to try something new.
In the first event it was a mass start boater x through the rapid, up the river left eddy, ferry back through the rapid and into the main river right eddy for the first stage of the surf comp. Everyone pushed hard and many were in head to head sprints across the final eddy to make the finish line. With their arms burning it was time to start the first surf comp.
In the second event paddlers were scored on the best soul surf and style. What better way to get to know a new wave than to get out on it and try to get a smooth soul surf to figure out the sweet spots of the feature. Since Corbin is very dynamic, there were extra credit points for the random big trick if the wave gave up a good bounce.
In the third event each paddler was scored based on how many spins they could get in a 20 minute surf session. Extra points were given for clean spins, spins in a creek boat were double points, and extra points for a clean spin with a paddle twirl.
Here are the top 5 from each event.
Boater X:
John Koffel
Brian Jamieson
Jacob Peterson
Neal Mader
Marcus Lees
Soul Surf and Style:
Jacob Peterson-with some old school paddle twirls and shutter rudders
Brian Jamieson-perfect form in body separation during carving and spins
Chris Schatz-smooth carving and working the wave from one steep spot to the next
Kevin Pryor-catching Corbin can be difficult and Kevin’s first try was butter smooth and right into a smooth relaxed front surf. His first time on Corbin and in a Nomad no less….
Nick Perez- catching the wave in a side surf and going right into a smooth shove-it
Spin till ya puke-Spin Comp:
John Koffel
Marcus Lees
Jacob Peterson
Chris Schatz
Brian Jamieson

Upper Spokane Boater-X HTTD Results

bozemankayaker wrote 946 days ago:


Despite record early season low flows, there was a great turn out for the first Home Town Throw Down event in Spokane. Seventeen boaters showed up to bump elbows in a Boater Cross style sprint through the Mini Climax and Sullivan Hole Rapids. The low flows made the slack water between the two rapids long and still. This was the big equalizer for all heats as each competitor paddled hard through the slow section and trying to maintain or gain position. The tired arms were showing as they bunched up for the final eddy turn and ferry to the finish. For finals an additional gate was added at the bottom of the Mini Climax Rapid as a pinch point to bunch the group up for a fun battle across the slow section. A big thanks to World Kayak and their sponsors for making these events possible. The final results are listed below:
Heat 1: 1. Kurt Dobbins, 2. Brian Jamieson, 3. Jim Eaton, 4. Darren Kellogg, 5. Norm Smith
Heat 2: 1. Chris Dibble, 2. Kevin Pryor, 3. Mark Moore, 4. Ron Coddington, 5. Ben Piaskowski
Heat 3: 1. Hayden Smith, 2. Theron Vanhoff, 3. Marcus Lees, 4. Celene Olgeisson, 5. Chris Jundt, 6. Earnie Wright
Finals:
1. Kurt Dobbins
2. Brian Jamieson
3. Chris Dibble
4. Hayden Smith
5.Kevin Pryor
6. Theron Vanhoff
Thanks to those that helped with safety. A big thanks to Chris Celentano and Ron Coddington for some great Pics. We will see what the river provides for our next event next Wednesday 6/24…
