P9190578World Kayak Portland and the Kayak Shed in Hood River are hosting the final throwdown of the season on the beautiful Tieton River on September 18th. With the amount of people coming to the Tieton on that weekend, we decided that the Seattle region deserves their own event. The plan is to meet at the bridge wave at 11:00 am just downstream of High Noon near the lodges. For those of you who are familiar with the bridge wave, it is one of the best features on the Tieton and a perfect place to close out the season.

We will have awesome prizes from our sponsors such as Shred Ready, Jackson Kayak, Stoneyboater, Rapid Transit Media, Kokatat, Mountain Khakis, Astral Buoyancy, Immersion Research, Chaco and Smith Optics. As always prizes are awarded for participation.

US West team member Jeffery Steehler will be on hand to help officiate and show off a few moves of his own.

Let’s make this the biggest of the year and come on out show your stuff.
