Cascade had its second HomeTown ThrowDown this past Saturday. We had eleven participants that all competed in the second feature of Kelly’s Whitewater Park. The weather was in the high 80′s and the Payette North fork was a perfect temp.
 
Water levels are still above normal compared to last summer, which made the wave a little flushy, but nice and deep. Most of the tricks were loops and space godzillas. Wesley even did a few clean cartwheel paddle spin combos.
 
Three of our competitors were all the way from Bend, Oregon. And …

Saturday was out last Throwdown for the year in Idaho. Weather in
Cascade was awesome with a bit of a breeze. But you could tell that
Fall is not far off.
I am so jazzed to see the kids from Kelly’s Kayak Academy continuing
to return and have Troy Wilson run a clinic for them prior to the
Throwdowns.  These kids are really excited about paddling.
Water was down to about 1400 cfs (from the normal 2200), so made it a
bit shallow but the more skilled paddlers could still throw ends and
loop. Water still feels good …

Idaho is on Fire….and we were reminded of that during our 4th Hometown Throwdown as Long Valley filled with smoke so thick you could taste it. Fires near Horseshoe Bend, Stanley and Mountain Home have been burning for weeks and Idaho is second only to Colorado for fire activity this summer.
However we had a great time and the 90* weather made the water all the better.
We had 6 kids return from Kellys Kayak Academy Devon Barker-Hicks has been teaching. Great to see them show up and show continued interest in …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Idaho Throwdown #1 2011

Last Friday we had our first  Idaho Hometown Throwdown of the year at the gutter. We had a good turn out for a chilly April evening, 10 competitors and a bunch of spectators  Alpenglow was nice enough to bring a gaggle of demo boats for whoever wanted to try them, including the new Rock Stars from Jackson kayak which drew lots of “Oooo’s and Ahhhh’s” from those that tried them out.
The wave wasn’t the best for aerial tricks, but a great front surf and spin wave. Mychal Hayes was the …
