Throwdown #1 and #2 – 2016

Sorry for the late write up but I’ve been out of town. We had our first Hone Town Throwdown here in Idaho on June 24th. And our second Throwdown was last night, July 1st.

Trot ran our first HTTD as nobody from Boise could make it to cascade. Hwy 55 was closed due to an accident. So we figured a couple of locals from Cascade may show up since nobody from Boise would be able to make it up. Troy is living in Cascade, teaching at Kellys Whitewater Park so was already there. He texted me five minutes into the competition that 20 competitors showed up from the Cascade and McCall area!

Last night we had 12 paddlers and great weather for our Throwdown. The water levels shot up from 1,400 CDs to 2,100 CDs overnight and made for a flusher wave, but a few paddlers were able to dial it in and we had a great show from everyone. One of the surf instructors even jumped in the mix and had his first surf in a kayak :]

We had a great time at both Throwdowns and looking forward to our last two of the summer. If your in the area find us at Kellys Whitewater Park in Cascade, Idaho!

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!
