This has been a good month for paddling – ok, what month isn’t a good month for paddling?!?  The James River has been low but the Lower James through downtown Richmond has retained adequate levels for padding.  I just read a recap of the Coastals trip to paddle the Yough, Lower Big Sandy, and other rivers to our north.  And we’re getting ready for our first Hometown Throwdown here in Richmond (taking place this Wednesday, June 24 at 6pm – here’s an event link:

https://www.facebook.com/events/1437408479912844/

Since this is my first blog post as Richmond’s World Kayak Ambassador  I’ll give you a little background on myself.  I’m originally from Little Rock, Arkansas.  I moved to Richmond in January of 2014 following a year working for Nantahala Outdoor Center and Jackson Kayak.  A large part of why I chose Richmond is because of the year round flows on the James River and the overall quality of whitewater in the area.  I’m excited to represent World Kayak and have the opportunity to re-establish a presence here with 2-3 Hometown Throwdown (HTTD) events over the course of this summer.

That’s it for now.  I hope to see everyone at this weeks HTTD!

HTTD #1 (2015) – Wednesday, July 24 at 6pm

For this first event, we’re going to have a down river (Lower James River) race. We are going to meet at Reedy Creek (put in for Lower) at 6:00pm. Unload your boats and gear and let’s meet at the top of the ramp leading to the water. We’ll have a short group meeting then a shotgun start.

The race will take place from Reedy Creek to 14th Street Whitewater Takeout. At the conclusion of the race join me for a cold beer and awards (WK schwag) at the takeout.

If you paddle a boat down river, you’re invited to join in the race. If you don’t plan to paddle still feel free to join us. Everyone is invited to attend.

*Paddlers will need to set their own shuttle.
