2016 Reno Throwdown #4

As the snow in the Sierras started melting and filling our rivers we transitioned from freestyle to creek racing for our Reno HTTDs.  Last Wednesday saw a fun crew take 2 runs down a 2-3 min course on the Truckee River’s Floriston Rapids.  Colin and I set up a fun course that involved a switch section and tough S-Turn maneuver.  Toby kept things going as the sun was setting and everyone improved on their second run over their first.

2016 Steelhead Falls Huck-Fest

Sunday we got together at Steelhead Falls for some hucking good times.  The forecast was for rain, but it turned out dry and pleasant.  The flow was the lowest I have ever seen at 580 cfs, which provided for forgiving drops.  Special recognition to Aaron Anderson who made his first waterfall drop, and also to Scott and Joan for pictures and video.

2016 HTTD #2

Well throwdown number two was super fun for kayakers and spectators alike.
Everyone improved over the first throwdown and we saw some big tricks.
It was great to see some new and old faces at the Reno park as we enjoy the river after several dismal years of flows.
Everyone staid for several hours discussing boating plans for the year and enjoying Ninkasi Beer.
The prizes awesome as usual and everyone got to pick something based on their name being drawn from the hat.

New Years Day Metolius Paddle

A heathy sized group of Central Oregon paddlers enjoyed the first day of 2016 in the sunshine and on the water.  The 36 degree water of the Metolius River and zero degree air temperatures did not deter spirits.
