Boise HomeTown ThrowDown #4

Here at Boise we’ve had our last Hometown Throwdown of the year. A big thank you to everyone thats helped make it such a fun year.
As usual our competition was on the second feature at the amazing Kelly’s Whitewater Park in Cascade, Idaho.
We had eleven competitors, two of which were all the way from Portland, Oregon.
Everyone had three rides, best two count, to show off their tricks. There were a few less ariels than before mostly because of the lower water that made the wave shallower than usual. There were …

Industrial Wave-HTTD #2 West Kootenays, BC

The second HTTD to hit the koots came after wrapping up the highest water Kootenay Whitewater Festival in history on Sunday evening.  The competitors were soggy after surviving the rainy flood level festival and it seemed like the World Kayak HTTD would produce a weak turnout.  Lucky for us the sun found it’s way through the clouds and the record high water produced a surf wave in Trail that blew everyone out of the water, some literally.
 

 
Industrial hole was in last season for the first time in over 12 years …

Slocan River BoaterCross HTTD#1

With three divisions, Long Boat, Expert, and intermediate paddlers had ample categories to showcase their skills.  We even had a R-2 Raft team that placed third in the longboat group.  Sven P grabbed the first spot in the expert category placing first in all heats while the intermediate group was a neck to neck match with loving couple Ian and Heather battling it out.  The long boat group was won narrowly by Endless Adventure young ripper, Sam the Hammer.

After the event the group met at Whisper’s Take out for some …

Idaho Throwdown #5

Yet another awesome Throwdown for Idaho, but sadly, its the last one of the year. We had around hundred spectators for this event. The KWP wave was primo for smaller boats. It was shallower than the last few times, but it made up for it by being stickier. Our group consisted of more people from out of town than locals. Out of the nine of us, five were from Bend, Oregon. It was awesome having that group paddling with us. They did an excellent job, especially for having so few …

Idaho Throwdown #4

ThrowDown number four is over for Boise. Yesterday I was up at Kelly’s Whitewater Park along with nine other competitors- two of which were from Utah. I think this was our first TD with only one junior, which was me. So I was thrown in with the mens category. Like before, we were on the second feature and it was perfect for our group. There were a few more kayakers new to surfing that were game to get in there. All of them did …

Boise Hometown Throwdown #6

Boise’s final Hometown Throwdown of the year was a great finish to the series. We even had a special guest appearance by Reno Jackson paddler Sage Donnelly. If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting this little gal, you are missing out – she is personality-plus!   (and a great little paddler!)
Seth Stoenner owned the hole with flurries of aerial moves – his smooth style makes paddling look so easy… We ran two hole runs and then a couple of Boater-x heats. We didn’t draw prizes until about an …

Park&Ride System for Worlds!

For visitors and competitors alike, we have been putting lots of energy into a working and smart Park&Ride System while this event! Due to very limited parking in the city center, in cooperation with the Swiss Army we have been setting up the Parkinglot “P8″ as “Park&Ride” How to find it: Exit the Highway at Thun Süd and follow the Eventsigns (WM). When you come to a big round-about, follow the sign “Park&Ride”.. the parking is for free, but not the bus which will take you right into citycenter (trainstation)

Boise’s last Homtown Throwdown of the season was a great finish to our Throwdown series – hard to believe it’s over for the season. Temps near 80, lots of sun, great contestants and spectators made for an enjoyable evening. Even with school in full swing we had gaggle of kids and several adults ready to show their stuff. It is amazing to see the progress everyone made over the season!
With the shorter days it was tough to finish up before dark, but we made it – then had a great …
