Throwdowns are FREE events over the course of the 2010 paddling season.  Events will range from simple rodeos to freestyle through rapid style competitions.  Judging will be simple and done by competitors or friends.  Prizes are given for participation, not scores, and a growing list of schwag will be given away via draws and door prizes.

The World Kayak Hometown Throwdowns will be modelled after the Maryland Chute Outs, events that have successfully been run for 10+ years in DC.  Each event is being run by the local World Kayak Ambassador and his or her team.  Volunteers are welcome… please see the “Throwdown Contact Page” for contact information for your regional Throwdown.

All Throwdowns will be covered at and each competitor will be able to post their results at their personal blogspot for all to see.  World Kayak will be providing on-line registration as well as accepting walk-on registrations the day of the events.

  • Jackson Kayaks
