News from Rapid Media Staff:

The 2016 Adidas Sickline Extreme Kayak World Championship runs from October 6 to 8 in Austria. This will be the ninth time the championship takes place on the Wellerbrücke river section in the Ötztal Valley.

The Wellerbrücke rapids are class V whitewater with many high consequence sections. This competition differs from many other whitewater events because it brings together paddlers from different disciplines—including slalom kayakers, extreme kayakers and river expedition kayakers. The head-to-head format in qualifying rounds makes the competition extremely close.

In the 2015 event Norwegian Mariann Saether won the women’s title with a time of 1:03:49, while Spain’s Gerd Serrasolses won the men’s with a time of 55.34.

Lean to Surf Clinic #2

tommygunn wrote 795 days ago:


We had our 2nd learn to surf clinic on the White Salmon river (WA). We ran the lower section which is about 3 miles and had a great surf wave on it. We had a smaller turn out than last time, but one couple (father / daughter) drove 150 miles EACH way to join us. Just for the clinic. So I think something is going right. We worked a lot on eddy turns, ferries, peel outs and and even a “S – Turn” before arriving at Cave wave. One of our paddlers managed to get on the wave and surfed like a champ.

After the paddle we handed out a little SWAG and enjoyed some Ninkasi beers! Good times in the Columbia Gorge!

Cherry Hole Rodeo 2016

Last weekend, the Wenatchee River graced us with near perfect river levels for a freestyle rodeo at Cherry Hole in the Tumwater Canyon. While the majority of the play features on the Wenatchee vanish as the water comes down, Cherry Hole appears and delivers a textbook play hole style feature. If you’re looking to throw inverted tricks with large amplitude, this is your wave.

Darren Albright getting some serious pop!

The format for the rodeo was as follows. Paddlers teamed up in groups of four and paddled for 5 minutes. This allowed us to score the paddlers individually without trying to cycle through the whole rotation of 13 paddlers. While each paddler took to the wave, they were scored by three judges on trick difficulty, height and combos, and overall style. During the five minute heats, paddlers tried to rack up as many points as possible. There were two heats with a short break in the middle and it was amazing how some of the paddlers stepped it up from the first heat to the second.

Jordan Ross getting those ends deep!

Eli Spiegel making it look easy

Janelle Deane getting her Jedi surf on

Brett Barton preparing for a deep dive into the face

Jackson Pahlke partying in a Rockstar

Chase Nobles standing her up real tall

Ben Kinsella bringing that World Class steeze, setting up for a big loop

Tyler Nicklos pulling a hard carve across the face, looking for that sweet spot

The full scene! Cherry Hole makes a perfect venue for a freestyle rodeo.

Overall, everyone threw down extra hard and we all had a great time. Thanks a ton to everyone who made it out. Special thanks to Marco Colella and Mercé Chamness for helping with judging and organization. Christopher Kelly was the onsite photographer for the rodeo. If you would like to see more images from the competition or purchase an image, you can email Chris @ ceeksmaui@yahoo.com. This event was sponsored by the World Kayak Organization. A big shout out to all of our supporters who make these community events possible!!

Cheers,

T-Pot!
