Nothing makes Missoula feel more like summertime then Thursday Night Throwdown Freestyle kayak series.  This is the 5th season of  the Thursday Night Throwdown kayak series on Brennan’s Wave.  The 2011 TNT #1 had awesome water levels (possibly the best in the events history).   Athletes threw-down some epic moves and high scores with tricks like the Air Loop, Pistol Flip & Clean blunt.  The competitors consisted of 10 Men, 4 Women and 2 Juniors.   Temps were bellow average for July 14th, but that didn’t stop mega spectators from making their way down to catch the action.  Thursday Night Throwdowns are ultra fun for the entire Missoula community.  Live Dj’s mixed up the tunes from the wave outlook as the athletes mixed up the tricks on Brennan’s wave.  Food vendors from Missoula’s best eateries kept everyone feed and hydrated.   The Max Wave Missoula’s new wave project was on hand promoting the Max.  They had 3 different concept’s of what the wave could possibly look like on display.  It’s a super good way to get public im-put on what the wave should become.  Also the X-sports 4 Vets were representing on and off the water.  They had a booth set up where they were offering a number of raffle prizes.  They also got on their river boards and did a sweet demo on the wave.  Two of Missoula’s best local raft companies (MRG & Zootown Surfers) were on hand offering raffles for free raft trips and kayak lessons.  And last but not least Strongwater Paddle Sports, and First Interstate Bank made it all possible.  All said and done it was an epic evening that seemed to capture what freestyle kayaking competition is all about.
