We had another great Throwdown at Kelly’s Whitewater Park on July 26th. There were 11 competitors who all competed on the middle wave, like we usually do, then went up and did a boater cross at the end. Since the river has dropped a little, the wave was stickier and wider, though a little shallow if you weren’t careful.
It was great to see some people new to the the Throwdowns, including two students from the Kelly’s Kayak Academy, a school that teaches local kids to paddle.
This month’s competition saw a few more moves thrown than usual, since the sticker wave allowed for these and we had some very experienced kayakers there.
Overall, another great event. Its so neat to have these low-key events where you can challenge yourself and still have fun! Thanks for a great event guys!
