Reno HTTD #4

Bad Weather Wed made it’s return this week with cool winds, clouds, and some rain drops.  Even so we had a great time surfing the competition wave at the Reno Whitewater Park.  Flows have finally come down to the normal peak flow range of around 3-4,000 cfs instead of 6,000 cfs it has been for several months.  This made for a great, friendly wave hole for blunts, cartwheels, clean spins, loops, and mcnasties.  Kayaking was followed by Ninkasi beverages and prizes from our sponsors including Accent Paddles, IR, Astral, Kokatat, Effort and Mountain Khakis.  

In two weeks we will be having our final HTTD of the year in Reno and we have a Large IR Drytop as part of the Raffle, so plan on coming out for that.  Information on location will follow.

See you soon…

2017 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown #1

bozemankayaker wrote 198 days ago:


The first event in the 2017 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown series was some fast paddling fun! We had a great turn out with 15 competitors joining in for some friendly downriver boatercross competition!  We had some spectators who watched and cheered on the competitors from the start line.  The event was held on the Lower Nolichucky River, TN with mild cloudy skies.

The river level was around 1,200 CFS and spirits were high with several first timers in this event!  The course start was at the USA Raft river access and the finish line was the Chestoa Pike Bridge 1.5 miles downstream.  The course have several class I-II rapids and a couple of islands to negotiate along the way.  We launched classes in a mass start format and good times were had by all!

2017 HTTD Season kicks off April 26th

natefry wrote 244 days ago:


It’s that time again…

Hometown Throwdown Season

This year we have already had more precipitation than any other year in recorded history in the Northern Sierra so flows will be high throughout the summer.  With that in mind we are going to go a bit longer this year and hold events through June.  So grab your friends, dust off the paddling gear, and meet us in two weeks to kick things off.  HTTD will start at 5-530pm on Wednesdays every two weeks.

  • April 26th –  Reno Whitewater Park  –  Slalom Survivor Race
  • May 10th — TBD
  • May 24th — TBD
  • June 7th — TBD
  • June 21st — TBD

Because flows will be changing a lot this season, we will be adjusting the event type and location as we go. So check back in for information on the next event.  As always Colin has worked to get great sponsors for World Kayak in 2017, this year we already have lots of great gear from:

  • Jackson Kayak
  • Mountain Khakis
  • Ninkasi
  • Accent Paddles
  • IR
  • Kokatat
  • Effort Inc.
  • Astral

Remember that we will always have lots of great beer from Ninkasi Brewing.

See you on the 26th!!!!!

Adidas Sickline 2016 Race

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.
