No sweet boof this time but getting closer Travis!

Newbie Jordan hols an edge to keep from a flip in the rocky shallow water of Burleigh!

Week 1 of the KWP Fun Run Series kicked off last Thursday night with a great turnout of 15 paddlers despite the lowish water conditions. One of the great  things about the Fun Run’s location is the variety of river features, which provide lots of opportunity for honing various skills. Thursday night’s level meant that a pretty much perfect rock flake for boofing came into play on the main drop. As anyone who has tried to improve their boofing technique knows, it takes considerable proactive to nail the right form and this feature is perfect for that. Quick turnaround this week, next Fun Run on our rotating weekly Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday schedule is Tuesday, June 21st at Burleigh Falls, located about 30 minutes north of Peterborough on highway 28. Come on out anytime after 5:30 and join in the fun – here’s hoping for more water!

Fourth Annual World Kayak 2015 Jordan Race!

natefry wrote 996 days ago:


In much the same style as the 2014 Jordan race, here comes the 2015 Jordan race! Come out to race the legendary rivers of Revy!

Race will be composed of teams of two running from rapid number three down to the bridge. Times will be taken, and the fastest boaters will win prizes.

Safety will be provided by your team member. Any help you get outside that from other racers, organizers, bystanders or lost tourists should be considered a bonus so make sure you would be comfortable paddling the river alone with your friend on any other day, when glory is not on the line.

Gather at the powerline pull-out river right of the take-out. Registration (free) is from 1 – 2 pm, race starts at 3. Two minute intervals, One run. Be in your gear and ready to go when you’re meant to.

Awards will be held around 4:30.  World Kayak and Endless Adventure will be providing prizes for the event.

After party will take place after. BYOB.

HTTD #1 2015- Slocan Boatercross

Racers trying to grab top spot

The first event of the 2015 World Kayak Hometown Throwdown series took place on the Mighty Slocan River at Initiation wave at Crescent Valley beach.  Competitors came out to race despite the numerous kayaking options this spring due to a early melt and above normal seasonal levels.

Heats of 4 or 5 paddlers decided the make up of the finals with paddlers facing off in a gruelling battle around a gate and across river to the finish line. The race strategy was crucial for a win as some paddlers took a high line at the starting point to ensure a quicker spin around the gate.  Paddlers opting for the low line were left in the wake.
