Greetings from your World Kayak Ambassador!

I hope everyone has been enjoying this nice weather and some higher than usual water levels on the River James (I know I have).

The purpose of this post is to let you guys know that I am planning three or four World Kayak events for this summer.  Tentative dates are June 2, June 30, July 21, and September 13 or 15.

This year, in addition to the seasoned paddlers who typically attend the events, I want to encourage those who are new or relatively new to kayaking to “come on out”.  There’s be plenty of prizes (free schwag) for everyone who participates and I believe a good time will be had by all.

Stay tuned for specific details on each event.  More details will follow in the coming weeks.

Have ideas for events or how to make our gatherings as inclusive as possible?  Please share.  You can PM me on Facebook or email me at toddanderson6@gmail.com.

Oh, one last thing…a quick shout out to our sponsors:  Mountain Khakis, Keen Footwear, Ninkasi Brewing, Shred Ready, Astral Bouyancy, Smith Optics, Accent Paddles, Rapid Transit; and last but not least – Jackson Kayak.

Cheers!

Todd

2016 HTTD #2

Well throwdown number two was super fun for kayakers and spectators alike.
Everyone improved over the first throwdown and we saw some big tricks.
It was great to see some new and old faces at the Reno park as we enjoy the river after several dismal years of flows.
Everyone staid for several hours discussing boating plans for the year and enjoying Ninkasi Beer.
The prizes awesome as usual and everyone got to pick something based on their name being drawn from the hat.

Thanks to World Kayaks Sponsors:
