A Great Night at Corbin Wave

tommygunn wrote 89 days ago:


We had a large turnout of over 15 boaters and the levels were perfect for Wednesday Nights Throw Down at Corbin Wave. For many it was their first time getting in the water and playing at Corbin and the energy in the water was full of excitement. There were three main events designed to be fun yet push all of the paddlers to try something new.
In the first event it was a mass start boater x through the rapid, up the river left eddy, ferry back through the rapid and into the main river right eddy for the first stage of the surf comp. Everyone pushed hard and many were in head to head sprints across the final eddy to make the finish line. With their arms burning it was time to start the first surf comp.
In the second event paddlers were scored on the best soul surf and style. What better way to get to know a new wave than to get out on it and try to get a smooth soul surf to figure out the sweet spots of the feature. Since Corbin is very dynamic, there were extra credit points for the random big trick if the wave gave up a good bounce.
In the third event each paddler was scored based on how many spins they could get in a 20 minute surf session. Extra points were given for clean spins, spins in a creek boat were double points, and extra points for a clean spin with a paddle twirl.
Here are the top 5 from each event.
Boater X:
John Koffel
Brian Jamieson
Jacob Peterson
Neal Mader
Marcus Lees
Soul Surf and Style:
Jacob Peterson-with some old school paddle twirls and shutter rudders
Brian Jamieson-perfect form in body separation during carving and spins
Chris Schatz-smooth carving and working the wave from one steep spot to the next
Kevin Pryor-catching Corbin can be difficult and Kevin’s first try was butter smooth and right into a smooth relaxed front surf. His first time on Corbin and in a Nomad no less….
Nick Perez- catching the wave in a side surf and going right into a smooth shove-it
Spin till ya puke-Spin Comp:
John Koffel
Marcus Lees
Jacob Peterson
Chris Schatz
Brian Jamieson

RedBull Lower Nolichucky Spring Cleaning w/ Dane Jackson

james wrote 155 days ago:


Where: USA Raft – 2 Jones Branch Rd, Erwin TN 37650
When: March 18 – 19
Meeting Time: 10am March 18th

Every spring, temperatures warm up and it’s that time again; to clean up your home and all that you love. For Dane Jackson, the Tennessee rivers and waterways have been his home since he first hopped in a boat. Conscious of the trash floating down river and collected at the shores as he paddles, Danes wants to make sure that the water that gave him his life’s passion are clean and usable for the next generation of young kayakers. 


Dane Jackson is teaming up with the University of Tennessee Knoxville Outdoor Program and USA Raft to take a group of kayak and outdoor enthusiasts on a two-day trip to clean up the Nolichucky River. The team will be launching from the USA Raft facility each morning and will host a BBQ to all participants on Saturday night.  Any questions, e-mail Nils (Nils.Granger@us.redbull.com)
