Sorry for the late writeup but I’ve been replacing my roof that blew off in a storm
Yeah – our first Hometown Throwdown of the year that it didn’t snow or ‘snain’ on us! Plenty of water, weather in the 90s, and pumped-up paddlers made for a super fun day.
We were honored to team up with the Kelly’s Kayak Academy (KKA) for their graduation from week long clinics at KWP with Devon Barker-Hicks, Brent LaFay and Troy Wilson. KWP offers free (yes FREE) kayak lessons to Valley County kids …

The first Boise Throwdown was held yesterday at Kelly’s Whitewater Park. On the way down we thought it would be amazing if even six people showed up on a cloudy forty five degree day, but we were pleasantly surprised to have fifteen competitors, including two from Washington and four from Sun Valley. Everyone was tough and got in the water, even though it looked like it would rain. It never rained and actually turned out to be a nicer day than I’d thought.
As for the wave, it was a great …

2011 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown Event #2

The second event in the 2011 Nolichucky/Nantahala Hometown Throwdown series was a rockin’ rodeo at Big Rock on the Lower Nolichucky River, TN!  We had 32 competitors join in for some fun freestyle competition!  We also had several spectators who watched and cheered on the competitors from the Riverpark Campground bank.  The river level was around 800 CFS which made the Big Rock wave/hole feature nice and fluffy for big air!  The weather for the afternoon was sunny skies and warm temps.
