Hometown Throwdown #4

Our last Hometown Throwdown for Idaho took place under a beautiful clear sky (no smoke, ya-hoo), and warm temps in Cascade. We had 10 paddlers show up ready to go, then 6 SUPs asked if they could compete. We threw together a quick score sheet to award points for some SUP skills – and bam – 16 paddlers hit the warm, clear water at Kellys Whitewater Park. Was great fun to see some of our long time pals like Willard, Travis, Mike and Tara show up. Plus a bunch of kids which always makes an event more fun. And a group from Bend, Oregon – always good to add new blood and make new friends.
SUPs added some nice diversity and cool to see the skills they had aquired.
Next year we plan to have a full-fledged SUP catagory and run their event right after the kayaks. So stay tuned for that.
Thanks everyone for making it a great season – BIG PROPS to our sponsors!
Catch you next year!

Sarapiqui River Festival Costa Rica

Kayak Ramp at the Sarapiqui River Festival
The Sarapiqui River Festival began 3 years ago as a collaboration between Chilamate Rainforest and World Class Kayak Academy as a way to give back to the local community and get the local kids on the river and in boats and as a day to celebrate the Sarapiqui River in a safe family environment.
This year, 2013, is the River Festivals 3rd year and this year the organisation was taken on by a local organisation Chilamate Activo together with the hard work and logistical coordination of World Kayak Costa Rican Ambassador Davis Azofeifa (owner of Chilamate Rainforest Eco Retreat), and a great number of local and international sponsors and supporters including: World Kayak, Selva Whitewater, Tropical Duckies, Sarapiqui Outdoor Center, Aventuras del Sarapiqui, Rios Lagos y Mares, World Class Kayak Academy, Ferreteria el Tucan, Super Malibu, World Leadership School and Lago Jalapa, and the local firefighters and red cross.
This years Festival kicked off on Saturday the 23rd of November with an extreme creek race and peaked on Sunday the 24th with an inclusive Sarapiqui down river race and the RAMP!!! Attendance was higher than ever. Great food and local artwork abound. PURA VIDA!! We hope to see you next year!!
