Idaho Throwdown #1 2013

Idaho’s first Hometown Throwdown of the year was finally on a warm sunny day and we had great flows at Kelly’s Whitewater Park. Temps in the mid 70′s and warmer water meant no poggies or skull-caps.

 

With these flows the second feature is great for loops, space godzillas, cartwheels, pretty much anything you can throw in a wave-hole.

 

We ran three hole rides and had a couple of swims. Swims to me mean people are getting out of their comfort range and LEARNING! So kudos to those swimmers :-)

 

We also saw some good aerial action from Troy Wilson and Mike Vorrhees. Connor Voorhees was our youngest competitor at 9 years old.

 

We had a bonus surprise when we got together for our prize drawing, EJ showed up and gave a tour of the new RockStar.

 

Our next TD will be on July 27, again at Kelly’s Whitewater Park. Hope to see you there!
