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.

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:

  • Kokatat
