Throwdown #1 and #2 – 2016

Sorry for the late write up but I’ve been out of town. We had our first Hone Town Throwdown here in Idaho on June 24th. And our second Throwdown was last night, July 1st.

Trot ran our first HTTD as nobody from Boise could make it to cascade. Hwy 55 was closed due to an accident. So we figured a couple of locals from Cascade may show up since nobody from Boise would be able to make it up. Troy is living in Cascade, teaching at Kellys Whitewater Park so was already there. He texted me five minutes into the competition that 20 competitors showed up from the Cascade and McCall area!

Last night we had 12 paddlers and great weather for our Throwdown. The water levels shot up from 1,400 CDs to 2,100 CDs overnight and made for a flusher wave, but a few paddlers were able to dial it in and we had a great show from everyone. One of the surf instructors even jumped in the mix and had his first surf in a kayak :]

We had a great time at both Throwdowns and looking forward to our last two of the summer. If your in the area find us at Kellys Whitewater Park in Cascade, Idaho!

July 8th – 6PM
July 23rd – 1PM

Hometown Throwdown #1

natefry wrote 127 days ago:


Local boaters have been warming up in the pool this winter. To kick things off, our first hometown throwdown took place at the Paul Stock Aquatic Center. This event began with a short introduction of the competition layout and rules. Shortly after, the

Jake Skeen throwing some Class IV Cartwheels.

competitors were given thirty minutes to check off as many items as possible from the provided list of moves.

The moves ranged from turning a kayak (class I) to switching kayaks with a partner (Class V). While some moves appeared simple on paper, the actual execution proved to be quite the challenge. Only one participant was able to complete the move that required the competitor to stand up in their kayak while in the water, turn 360 degrees, and sit back down in their kayak.

Of the sixteen competitors participating in this event, there were three women, five youth, and eight men. The top three competitors in each category included:

Youth Female

Lucy (1st)

Youth Male

David (1st)

Hugh (2nd)

Alex (3rd)

Women

Jill (1st)

Billy (2nd)

Men

Jerod (1st)

Taylor (2nd)
