This one evening course will be focused on the fundamentals of freestyle kayaking.  You will learn more than you ever wanted to know about how to have more fun in a kayak.  You will also learn how to continue to improve AFTER the class on your own.  You will be tired, sore, and happy after this class. :-)  The clinic will be held at Freedom Hall Pool in Johnson City, TN.  Course will be limited to 10 students.  This course will likely fill up fast so be sure to send in your registration form and payment to reserve your spot ASAP.

Last Boise Hometown Throwdown for 2015

bozemankayaker wrote 980 days ago:


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!
