First Home Town Throw Down of 2018

transom wrote 158 days ago:


Water levels are high and so was the energy at Dead Dog Hole for some fun competition. The event starting out with a bang as someone driving by on I-90 called in a kayaker in distress and we were paid a visit by a couple of County Sheriff Deputies that just wanted to make sure everyone was OK. Both declined the offer to jump in some of our spare gear and get out on the water with us. We paired up in teams of two for a combined score rodeo. Each team got three rides and one down river freestyle session. Afterwards everyone hung out for a short surf session and caught view of a classic Eastern Washington Sunset.
1st Place went to Team Old School– Jacob Peterson and Drew Stephens. Scoring 29 points, mixing up some old school moves with smooth cart wheels and modern freestyle.
2nd Place went to Team Send It—Ben Jordan and Chris Mowry. Scoring 20 points, and going big on every ride with plenty of loops and even a solid wing over entry on the down river freestyle session.
Taking up the rear was Team Zero—Brian Jamieson and Blake Sommers. Scoring 0 points, and showing up fashionably late but just in time to catch some surf before sunset.

A Great Night at Corbin Wave

tommygunn wrote 520 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
