Paddle in Pink Confidence Series: Dirty Bird

wildwildwes wrote 3 days ago:


 

When: July 7, 2018 @ 10:30 A.M.

Where: NOC Outpost on the Pigeon River

Who: Presented by Paddle in Pink for the ladies!

 

Ladies get out your playboats and your slicey boats, Paddle in Pink is putting on its 4th annual Dirty Bird Confidence Series.  Come on out and join Crystal Gustin, Nikki Winkler Malatin and Katie Dean for this fun day on the Pigeon River Gorge!!  They will be guiding you down the river and showing you how to play your way down the river.

Last year was a big success with many women learning how to get vertical and throw about in a playboat. This year the format will be very similar to last year; we will divide into two groups: short  playboats and slicey get vertical boats. If we have the interest, we will send a group directly down to the hole at NOC and work on park-n-play moves. Team members from Dagger, Pyranha and Jackson will lead the groups down the pigeon and instruct rock splats, eddie line squirts, surfing, loops and any request you want to throw at them.

The groups will progress to the NOC play hole where music and SweetWater beer will be enjoyed. A friendly competition will be in store to show off any move you would like to showcase. Pretty or otherwise.

The day will conclude with a raffle of prizes by various sponsors.

Please invite your friends!

Facebook event website for all the latest 411:

Don’t have a playboat or a slicey boat?  The Jackson Action Wagon is looking forward to supporting the event with FREE Jackson Kayak demos on-site!

Sponsors: Jackson Kayak

NoliFest 2018 Beat Night Fall BoaterX Results

james wrote 6 days ago:


Photo by Dale Swanson

Bristol Motor Speedway was not the only great racing colosseum the weekend of April 13-15th in the Tri-Cities! #beatnightfall at NoliFest had lots of action in the 8 mile enduro style course down the Nolichucky Gorge.

There were a total of 25 athletes in the inaugural event and Shane Benedict cheered from the side as the honorary sweep.  The river level was near 1,400 CFS, which was a decent medium flow for the run from Popular, NC to USA Raft Outpost near Erwin, TN (The site of NoliFest).  The GO FAST event was a mass start at the put-in and first one down to the USA Raft landing was the winner!  The real interesting part of the event was the BoaterX did not start till late in the evening at 7:00 PM, so athletes only had about an hour and a half to complete the course before the ran out of daylight.

Athlete’s spirits were high and motivated to go fast when the 3..2..1..GO countdown went down and huge wake was created in the pool at launch!  Rubbing was part to of this BoaterX event as athletes jostled for positions down the course.

There were a few good rowdy moments for sure!  The winning time ended up being right at 1 hour and everyone finished the course before darkness set in for the night.  Good times, good times!!
