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 …

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 …
