Reno HTTD #4

tommygunn wrote 497 days ago:


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 506 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!
