Hot Throwdown in the Queen City
It was a scorcher in Charlotte last Sunday with the first Hometown Throwdown of the season. Eighteen folks battled the heat and each other to show their stuff on Sunset and M-wave. There was some fierce competition from all over as paddlers came from Asheville and as far as Lynchburg, VA. We started the day with the juniors and the ladies on Sunset which is a nice little wave that you can throw loops on along with spinning yourself dizzy. We finished off with the men battling it out on the notorious M-Wave. Big blunts were in and D’z kids were going for airscrews, which M-Wave will give up if you time it spot on and they did. Everyone had a great time as we welcomed several first timers and a number of brave spectators who stuck out the entire event even though there Chacos were starting to melt. Here are the results:

7th Tie Connor and Pete

As usual a big thank you to all of our sponsors for making the events a blast. We were also joined by some of the paddlers from Pryhana who came to help us out with event and even brought a fleet of boats for everyone to demo and of course to Throwdown. Thanks to Matt, Ty, Rowan, and of course Big D for braving the heat and joining in the fun!
