Throwdown #1 and #2 – 2016

natefry wrote 742 days ago:


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

Greetings from your World Kayak Ambassador!

I hope everyone has been enjoying this nice weather and some higher than usual water levels on the River James (I know I have).

The purpose of this post is to let you guys know that I am planning three or four World Kayak events for this summer.  Tentative dates are June 2, June 30, July 21, and September 13 or 15.

This year, in addition to the seasoned paddlers who typically attend the events, I want to encourage those who are new or relatively new to kayaking to “come on out”.  There’s be plenty of prizes (free schwag) for everyone who participates and I believe a good time will be had by all.

Stay tuned for specific details on each event.  More details will follow in the coming weeks.

Have ideas for events or how to make our gatherings as inclusive as possible?  Please share.  You can PM me on Facebook or email me at toddanderson6@gmail.com.

Oh, one last thing…a quick shout out to our sponsors:  Mountain Khakis, Keen Footwear, Ninkasi Brewing, Shred Ready, Astral Bouyancy, Rapid Transit; and last but not least – Jackson Kayak.

Cheers!

Todd

Spokane Home Town Throw Down Season Opener

natefry wrote 797 days ago:


We are excited to bring another season of HTTD events to Spokane this summer. Our First event will be this Wednesday. With a much better snow pack this year and spring flows being a little unpredictable, I have been closely watching the gauge and polling the community for input on the first event.
We will start the season off with a short and exciting boater cross race at the Corbin Wave Rapid!!!!
• This Wednesday May 11th at Corbin Park in Post falls. Pre-Race Meeting at 6:00.
• Short boater cross style race in the Corbin Wave Rapid. The number and size of heats will depend on how many come out to play.
• All you need is your gear and a throw bag if you have one.
• Come out even if you are not interested in racing. It will be fun to watch and there is always a need for safety kayakers.
• Also bring friends and/or family as this location is a great lay out to for those that would liketo watch.
• After wards we will finish up in the parking lot with some laughs and swag.
A big thanks to World Kayak and their sponsors for providing the logistical pieces needed to make these fun grass root events happen. There will be plenty of pictures and stories to post soon.
To end the season last year we held the first ever “Best Line Competition” at the Devil’s Toenail. The water levels were low but you couldn’t tell by the size of the crowd and the energy that was brought to the water. Participants took multiple laps down the Toenail rapid and it was fun to watch the creativity as they pushed themselves to pick new lines.
• Best Boof-Chris Dibble sent it big getting his entire boat out of the water and landing with that classic “boof” sound that could be heard from shore.
• Best Style-Pat Harbine show cased his experience hitting the left line with smooth style and with a minimal three strokes through the entire rapid.
• Most Creative-Kurt Dobbins with a backwards eddy move down the center line.
• Best Carnage-A toss-up between Ron Coddington’s roll in the main drop of the left line and Theron Vanhoff’s upside down run on the right side boof.
• Best Eddy Turn-Bucky Sturgean showing us how it’s down eddy hopping down the left side of the Toe Nail and snapping the turns with authority.
• Most Supportive-Celene Olgeirsson cheering the every paddler on from top to bottom of their run and making sure safety was in place.
o We also had a good crew of spectators cheering for each paddler as they made run after run.
• Best Brace-Tom Moore hitting a big brace and recovery as his boat tried to take him for ride in a stern squirt.
Looking forward to seeing everybody tomorrow for another fun evening on the water!
Cheers
