Destin Harrell finishing a Left Spin on Grandma Cody

1st – Jerod Ready

2nd – Ed Conning

3rd – Destin Harrell

4th – Ken Do

We had a great group of boaters out this weekend. The day before, with flows around 2,500cfs, our options were limited. There was decent surf on Silver Tube(a fast intimidating wave), and Demaris (a slightly retentive hole). Then the day of the competition arrived, and the water level jumped to 4,000cfs. This opened a third option known as Grandma Cody. Grandma Cody is a big playful wave with a large foam-pile. The first ride began with Destin Harrell entering the wave, throwing two smooth left and right spins, and a left shove-it. A few others riders entered the feature, coming out with similar rides. The point race was on! With the top 4 paddlers within 5 points of one another, Ed Conning came out and threw a left blunt, and a backstab. Up next Jerod Ready entered the feature and finished his ride with a Pan Am. All participants collected some epic prizes. The June 17th competition will be located at Beck Lake. We will be getting the beginners out for a flatwater slalom course. Bring your speed, as this will be a timed event. See you out there!

2014 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown #2

james wrote 1395 days ago:


The second event in the 2014 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown series was big booming fun! We had a good turn out with 16 competitors joining in for some friendly freestyle rodeo for the first time since June of 2011!  We had several spectators who watched and cheered on the competitors from the river bank.  The event was held at Big Rock on the Lower Nolichucky River, TN with mostly sunny warm weather!

The river level was around 680 CFS; which is just starting to get retentive for play boating at Big Rock with the change in the feature due to the past two years of high flows.  We were all pretty excited though to final get some rodeo competition action in the feature!  A good time was had by all!

The Valley Mill May MD Chute Out; the gangs all here!

natefry wrote 1413 days ago:


The month of May had a lot of rain, and had the Potomac running high quite a bit. The original date of our May Chute out had to be moved due to another rainy day. The May Chute Out was held on Thur.June 5th, and it brought out a big crowd of twenty-one competitors.

The river level was 3.87 , meaning that the feature for the comp. would actually be the MD Chute itself. It was not the ideal level, to say the least, as the MD Chute spot was very wave like, and people would have to work pretty hard to stay retentive on the feature.

One competitor had no problem staying retentive, and that would be our youngest competitor, Kaelin Friedenson. Kaelin was in his Jackson Shooting Star and was a constant feature on the wave, so much so, that I think his new nickname should now be “Klear the wave Kaelin”. Keep an eye on this kid in the future. He is hungry, and getting pretty good already. His score of 67 pts would’ve placed him in 3rd in men’s K1B class!

On to the competition! We had fantastic weather, a big gang of competitors, and plenty of what the kids cal “stoke” for the event. Despite the flushy wave, people were giv’n ‘er and having tons o’ fun, and that is exactly what the MD Chute Out is all about! We had a couple C-1 ers, ten in K1B class, seven in K1A, one Jr (Kaelin), and one SUP’er.

Here are your results/scores=
