First Reno HTTD of 2017

Last Wed evening saw a great crew come out to compete in a slalom type race on the south channel of the Reno White Water Park.  5 months into the 2017 water year and we have already broken the record for most precipitation since records have been kept.  For example, last year we had about 500 cfs for our first throwdown, on Wed it was 5,000 cfs and has been for over a month.

Update The 8 Ball Race was a success! We had racers from 14 to 60 years of age going head to head with the rapids and the 8ball blockers. The Winner out of 3 heats was Jacob McClure taking 1st place in #2 and #3 heats. After the race. We had a free raffle for everyone. Then some went up stream to the 18ft waterfalls for some hucking. The others, paddled the class3 rapids downstream to the beach. This made a wonderful day of boating! Huge thanks to our sponsors, volunteers and paddlers!

2016 Reno Throwdown #4

As the snow in the Sierras started melting and filling our rivers we transitioned from freestyle to creek racing for our Reno HTTDs.  Last Wednesday saw a fun crew take 2 runs down a 2-3 min course on the Truckee River’s Floriston Rapids.  Colin and I set up a fun course that involved a switch section and tough S-Turn maneuver.  Toby kept things going as the sun was setting and everyone improved on their second run over their first.
