First Home Town Throw Down of 2017

The first event of the season is less than a week away! Looking at the river forecasts for the St. Joe and the Coeur d’Alene, lake levels, and current flows… Confidence is high that we will be able to make things happen at Corbin Wave!!! The level has been holding at a perfect 20,000 CFS for over a week now and there have been boaters out surfing it every day for almost a month. Next week’s event will be @ Corbin Park on Wednesday May 17th @ 6pm. The event lay out is geared to make it fun for the beginner to the advanced paddler, and for the downriver boater and/or the play boater in you. There will be 3 to four heats depending on flows and group size. The individual heat events will be announced at the start of the evening and should provide plenty of entertainment. This location is perfect to bring your family or a friend that is interested in kayaking. The location and ease of access make it perfect for them to watch our local kayaking community in action. So bring your long boat or your short boat and be ready to have some fun!
