Idaho Hometown Throwdown 2 and 3

8 July 2010 No Comment

Idaho Hometown Throwdowns for 6/24 and 6/26. With cancellations for high water we ended up with 2 Throwdowns in 3 days. Thursday evening we had a TD at the Gutter in Horseshoe Bend. The eddy was tough and everyone was tired at the end of the night.

Big thanks to Sean Bierle of Alzar School for helping score the variety on this night. Mike Voorhees hit cartwheels, split-wheels and backstabs. Tyler and Willard both had a split-wheel as well.

The youth had tons of energy, but were the tough eddy access as well. Alec was spot-on with cartwheels and and McNasty’s. Mychal was throwing some crazy loops. Good to have some gals in the mix and Sarah and Jessie both nailed a helix each and both had some really nice cartwheels.

Then Saturday morning we showed up for our first TD at Kelly’s Whitewater Park in Cascade Idaho.

Levels were on the high side of normal at about 2,350cfs. Mark Cecchini and I picked the top feature since the bridge wasn’t in yet; otherwise feature 2 looked like the sweet spot at this level.

It was great to have Mark back since he and Kate Moved to Moscow last year. Mark is always a great help with variety scoring and coaching – besides being fun to watch work the wave.

Mark and Mike were both throwing some nice cartwheels and loops, but Mark edged up with a helix and lots of technical points from cartwheels. Willard figured out the wave on his 2nd and 3rd rides and got in some great 45-degree spins

The youth were really tearing up the wave as well. Alec was throwing some serious loops, backstabs and space-godzillas. Mychal threw a donkey-flip and McNasty to move up to second. The rest of the crew had some great cartwheels and loops as well.

Our youngest contestant of the day, Buey Grossman, pulled great rides with hand-paddles and nailing his hand-rolls.
