Hometown Throwdown #4

james wrote 13 days ago:


Our last Hometown Throwdown for Idaho took place under a beautiful clear sky (no smoke, ya-hoo), and warm temps in Cascade. We had 10 paddlers show up ready to go, then 6 SUPs asked if they could compete. We threw together a quick score sheet to award points for some SUP skills – and bam – 16 paddlers hit the warm, clear water at Kellys Whitewater Park. Was great fun to see some of our long time pals like Willard, Travis, Mike and Tara show up. Plus a bunch of kids which always makes an event more fun. And a group from Bend, Oregon – always good to add new blood and make new friends.
SUPs added some nice diversity and cool to see the skills they had aquired.
Next year we plan to have a full-fledged SUP catagory and run their event right after the kayaks. So stay tuned for that.
Thanks everyone for making it a great season – BIG PROPS to our sponsors!
Catch you next year!

Hometown Throwdown #3 2014

tommygunn wrote 28 days ago:


We had another great Throwdown at Kelly’s Whitewater Park on July 26th. There were 11 competitors who all competed on the middle wave, like we usually do, then went up and did a boater cross at the end. Since the river has dropped a little, the wave was stickier and wider, though a little shallow if you weren’t careful.

It was great to see some people new to the the Throwdowns, including two students from the Kelly’s Kayak Academy, a school that teaches local kids to paddle.

This month’s competition saw a few more moves thrown than usual, since the sticker wave allowed for these and we had some very experienced kayakers there.

Overall, another great event. Its so neat to have these low-key events where you can challenge yourself and still have fun! Thanks for a great event guys!
