Spokane Home Town Throw Down Season Opener

james wrote 618 days ago:


We are excited to bring another season of HTTD events to Spokane this summer. Our First event will be this Wednesday. With a much better snow pack this year and spring flows being a little unpredictable, I have been closely watching the gauge and polling the community for input on the first event.
We will start the season off with a short and exciting boater cross race at the Corbin Wave Rapid!!!!
• This Wednesday May 11th at Corbin Park in Post falls. Pre-Race Meeting at 6:00.
• Short boater cross style race in the Corbin Wave Rapid. The number and size of heats will depend on how many come out to play.
• All you need is your gear and a throw bag if you have one.
• Come out even if you are not interested in racing. It will be fun to watch and there is always a need for safety kayakers.
• Also bring friends and/or family as this location is a great lay out to for those that would liketo watch.
• After wards we will finish up in the parking lot with some laughs and swag.
A big thanks to World Kayak and their sponsors for providing the logistical pieces needed to make these fun grass root events happen. There will be plenty of pictures and stories to post soon.
To end the season last year we held the first ever “Best Line Competition” at the Devil’s Toenail. The water levels were low but you couldn’t tell by the size of the crowd and the energy that was brought to the water. Participants took multiple laps down the Toenail rapid and it was fun to watch the creativity as they pushed themselves to pick new lines.
• Best Boof-Chris Dibble sent it big getting his entire boat out of the water and landing with that classic “boof” sound that could be heard from shore.
• Best Style-Pat Harbine show cased his experience hitting the left line with smooth style and with a minimal three strokes through the entire rapid.
• Most Creative-Kurt Dobbins with a backwards eddy move down the center line.
• Best Carnage-A toss-up between Ron Coddington’s roll in the main drop of the left line and Theron Vanhoff’s upside down run on the right side boof.
• Best Eddy Turn-Bucky Sturgean showing us how it’s down eddy hopping down the left side of the Toe Nail and snapping the turns with authority.
• Most Supportive-Celene Olgeirsson cheering the every paddler on from top to bottom of their run and making sure safety was in place.
o We also had a good crew of spectators cheering for each paddler as they made run after run.
• Best Brace-Tom Moore hitting a big brace and recovery as his boat tried to take him for ride in a stern squirt.
Looking forward to seeing everybody tomorrow for another fun evening on the water!
Cheers

I know it has been a while since I had a post. I’m have been busy but everything is back on track. I have managed to get out a paddle regularly and enjoy the water that we have had. It has been a good winter with a good amount of rain so got some higher level runs in that I normally don’t get to this time of year. The sad part is there hasn’t been much in the terms of Snow so I am expecting a low water year. We have already started to come up with plans for the Throwdowns later in the season so don’t worry about that.

HTTD # 3 Durango, Colorado

the scene at 'corner pocket'

With levels just above 1000cfs we had a great showing of paddlers from the local community for the 3rd throw down of the season here in Durango.  Some of the best surfs were had on ‘corner pocket wave’ although ‘ponderosa wave’ is still offering up a good ride as well, and being that the features are so close we were able to get an adequate session by hitting up both.

We had beautiful weather for our first HTTD for the season.  The water level at Souse Hole was very challenging at 1900 cfs.  This was the first Central Oregon HTTD with canoe and SUP entries and we hope to have more in the future.  Everyone had a great time at the BBQ and raffle.  Noel Anderson walked away wearing the awesome Chaco River Shoes, and those were my size too.  Darn!
