The levels in the West Kootenays are cranking a little earlier than expected this season making our beloved Brilliant wave a series of HUGE waves. Creeks up the Slocan and Nakusp valley are chugging and the mighty Slocan is already at high water!
World Kayak will be hosting a Home Town Throw Down at the Brilliant waves on Sunday June 1st at 2:00pm.
The format is as follows:
First Event: Big wave trick contest.
Paddlers will get a minimum number of surfs to prove their paddling prowess on ANY of the big waves at Brilliant. Choose between Solstice, Lucky 13, Brilliant, Organ Grinder or any of the smaller waves that lead out to the big wave train.
Best tricks win! Moves can be wave moves or down river freestyle as long as you pull them off smiling!
Second Event: Big water Boatercross!
Line up head to head with your amigos at the top eddy above all the waves, first one to the finish line at the bottom eddy wins! This portion of the HTTD held in June last year was a hit with all participants having a safe and fun race.
