Home Town Throw Downs Coming to Spokane

james wrote 1229 days ago:


We are excited to bring the HTTD events to Spokane this summer. Our First event will be next Wednesday.
Down River Kayak Race on the Upper Spokane!!!!
• Next Wednesday June 10th at the Mission Trail Head in the Spokane Valley. Pre-Race Meeting at 5:15
• Short boater cross style race down the Mini Climax and Sullivan Hole rapids. 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 the Centennial Trail is right next to these two rapids, making it easy to spectate.
• After wards we will finish up at the Mission Trail head for some laughs and swag.
The next HTTD is on Wednesday June 24th. The location and type of event will depend on water levels.
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.

Cheers

Fall Dam Releases Have Started

james wrote 1811 days ago:


Over the last couple of weeks Zoo Wave has been in on the Upper Spokane as Avista increased flows to draw down Lake Couer d’Alene. With any luck Avista will increase flows again soon, bringing in Sullivan Hole. Some local boaters are heading north to run the Kootenai River in Montana, or across the border for some surf on the Columbia River in Trail, B.C. The Hero Hole and Rock Island Wave in Trail are favorites in the late fall and early spring(photo left). A good variety of user friendly features to choose from in one location with great scenery and a fun friendly kayak community, make it well worth the two hour drive. The Kootenai River flows tend to be lower during the fall and allow for a wide variety of lines to play with in the mile and a half long canyon. Again the scenery and river make it well worth the couple hour drive north. Hopefully the weather will turn to rain and snow soon, bringing the Spokane River up to surfing levels at Sullivan Hole. Hope to see you on the water.
