Last Boise Hometown Throwdown for 2015

Idaho had our 6th, and last, Hometown Throwdown of the year on Saturday. Idaho, Oregon and Washington are on fire, and that resulted in a smoke filled sky in Cascade, Idaho. Not a lot of people are traveling out of Boise due to the fires.

After a brisk morning we had warm temps for our event. We ran 3 rides this event and really had a lot of fun. A great air show put on by Connor Voorhees, Mike Voorhees, Crosby Crevelt and Troy Wilson. Everyone had some good moves up their sleeves – so a good show by all.

A special thanks to all of our WK sponsors and to our local shops (Alpenglow Mountainsport, Salamander Paddle Gear, and River Gear) that donated prizes as well. Also a big thank you to Kelly’s Whitewater Park for allowing us to hold events at this world-class park! All of these guys help make our events more fun!

Hometown Throwdown #4

Our last Hometown Throwdown for Idaho took place under a beautiful clear sky (no smoke, ya-hoo), and warm temps in Cascade. We had 10 paddlers show up ready to go, then 6 SUPs asked if they could compete. We threw together a quick score sheet to award points for some SUP skills – and bam – 16 paddlers hit the warm, clear water at Kellys Whitewater Park. Was great fun to see some of our long time pals like Willard, Travis, Mike and Tara show up. Plus a bunch of kids which always makes an event more fun. And a group from Bend, Oregon – always good to add new blood and make new friends.
SUPs added some nice diversity and cool to see the skills they had aquired.
Next year we plan to have a full-fledged SUP catagory and run their event right after the kayaks. So stay tuned for that.
Thanks everyone for making it a great season – BIG PROPS to our sponsors!
Catch you next year!
