Local boaters have been warming up in the pool this winter. To kick things off, our first hometown throwdown took place at the Paul Stock Aquatic Center. This event began with a short introduction of the competition layout and rules. Shortly after, the

Jake Skeen throwing some Class IV Cartwheels.

competitors were given thirty minutes to check off as many items as possible from the provided list of moves.

The moves ranged from turning a kayak (class I) to switching kayaks with a partner (Class V). While some moves appeared simple on paper, the actual execution proved to be quite the challenge. Only one participant was able to complete the move that required the competitor to stand up in their kayak while in the water, turn 360 degrees, and sit back down in their kayak.

Of the sixteen competitors participating in this event, there were three women, five youth, and eight men. The top three competitors in each category included:

Youth Female

Lucy (1st)

Youth Male

David (1st)

Hugh (2nd)

Alex (3rd)

Women

Jill (1st)

Billy (2nd)

Men

Jerod (1st)

Taylor (2nd)

Jake (3rd)

Green River Rodeo

tommygunn wrote 863 days ago:


The Green River Rodeo is a free-form kayaking competition built around nontraditional freestyle. Essentially a group jam session. Competitors will meet at Green River Access Fund Parking lot at 9:30am August 1st. Please have all shuttle set. At 10 am we will announce four sections/rapids of the river the competition will be held on. As a unit the competitors/judges/film crew will move to each specified section of river and each athlete will get two scored runs (1 being lowest, 10 being highest) on that part of the river. The highest scoring run will count. There will be a 30 minute break while judges/camera crew get set up at the next spot and the format will repeat. After the event an awards party will be held where a winner will be crowned.

Check out all the details on the event website:
