2014 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown #2

wildwildwes wrote 1304 days ago:


The second event in the 2014 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown series was big booming fun! We had a good turn out with 16 competitors joining in for some friendly freestyle rodeo for the first time since June of 2011!  We had several spectators who watched and cheered on the competitors from the river bank.  The event was held at Big Rock on the Lower Nolichucky River, TN with mostly sunny warm weather!

The river level was around 680 CFS; which is just starting to get retentive for play boating at Big Rock with the change in the feature due to the past two years of high flows.  We were all pretty excited though to final get some rodeo competition action in the feature!  A good time was had by all!

Participation in all events is the key to bring home a series championship for the year!  Now that 2 events are complete the heat has been turned up for some of our competitors in their respective classes to make their place on the podium!  The competition is the hottest in the Men’s Intermediate K-1 class with only 40 points separating 1-4 places and a current tie for the 3rd spot!  We also currently have a tie for 1st place in the Men’s Novice K-1 class!  Both of these classes should be fun to watch going into event #3 to see who comes out on top…

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!!

2013 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown #1

wildwildwes wrote 1676 days ago:


The first event in the 2013 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown series was full of fun! We had 15 competitors join in for some friendly downriver freestyle/slalom and boatercross competition!  We had several spectators who watched and cheered on the competitors from the Riverpark Campground bank & the river right beach.  The event was held at Big Rock on the Lower Nolichucky River, TN with warm humid weather. 

The river level was a healthy 2,200 CFS, which made the main Big Rock wave/hole feature a fast flushy wave train.  Since a rodeo competition was not a good option, we came up with a slalom course through the rapid.  Each competitor got 2 runs through the course and each run counted for their “DFS” Score.  The course involved catching 3 eddies down through the rapid.  The first eddy was behind a rock above the main rapid feature.  The second eddy was behind a pour over on river left of the main rapid feature.  The final eddy was in between two swirly eddy lines river right of the main rapid feature.  The competitors got 10 points for each of the eddies they caught.  Competitors had 1:30 minutes to complete the course while attempting downriver freestyle moves along the way to earn additional points from our Variety and Technical judges!

 

The third run was a boatercross race for each class from the top of the campground and went through the main feature.  Then the race course veered through our version of the “Notch” between two large rocks on river right and finished on the river right beach below the rapid!  This made for a fun zigzag course with a bottle neck at the “Notch”.  We gave 10 pts per place in the boatercross race and summed the BC score with the DFS runs for the grand total!

Hometown Throwdown 2013 #2- Kootenay WW fest

Chris Ryman wrote 1791 days ago:


June 22nd 2013 4:00pm- Indy wave or Ace hole, Castlegar or Trail, BC

After the Kootenay Whitewater festival we will be hosting another WK HTTD. Last year the crew rallied after a big weekend of flood water kayaking to strut their stuff in a thrilling competition at Indy Wave. Competitors and spectators all agreed the after festival event was a success. Due to unknown snow pack and water levels we will announce the location closer to the event but rest assured we will be hosting the comp on the Industrial feature or Ace hole near Brilliant. contact Chris Ryman (250) 304-7569 or register on the World Kayak web page.

March 31st 2013 1:00pm- Hero Hole and Trail wave, Rock Island BC

 

This HTTD marks the beginning of the Kootenay Paddling season and the closing of the cold weather paddling scene. Every year we have been celebrating this weekend the end of cold winter paddling and the dawn of our amazing spring kayaking season. The competition is of course a friendly one with points scored for paddle twirls, smiles, and getting the crowd going. After the event, stick around for a dinner get together location TBD contact Chris Ryman (250) 304-7569 or register on the World Kayak web page.
