Last Boise Hometown Throwdown for 2015

Idaho had our 6th, and last, Hometown Throwdown of the year on Saturday. Idaho, Oregon and Washington are on fire, and that resulted in a smoke filled sky in Cascade, Idaho. Not a lot of people are traveling out of Boise due to the fires.

After a brisk morning we had warm temps for our event. We ran 3 rides this event and really had a lot of fun. A great air show put on by Connor Voorhees, Mike Voorhees, Crosby Crevelt and Troy Wilson. Everyone had some good moves up their sleeves – so a good show by all.

A special thanks to all of our WK sponsors and to our local shops (Alpenglow Mountainsport, Salamander Paddle Gear, and River Gear) that donated prizes as well. Also a big thank you to Kelly’s Whitewater Park for allowing us to hold events at this world-class park! All of these guys help make our events more fun!

Boise HomeTown ThrowDown #2 2014

This months HomeTown ThrowDown included people from Alabama and Oregon, as well as the local Idaho paddlers. We had the twelve competitors out on the middle feature here at Kelly’s Whitewater Park, which had been cold the week before, but we were lucky enough to have warm weather and sunshine.

The wave was a little flushy, but not too bad, as long as you landed your tricks right and paddled after each one. Tricks from spins and shuv-its, all the way to loops and Space-Godzillas were thrown, making for an impressive show.

Everyone did two rides, and then went up for a boater-cross. Lucky for us, we had the Payette River Games last weekend, so the ramp was still up. Most of the boater cross competitors slid down the ramp, though  few chose to launch off the bank.

It was a great group, who really made it a fun time for everyone. Thanks to all who showed up. Can’t wait for the next ThrowDown on July 26th. :)
