Freestyle Circuit Update




The freestyle tour is in full force! Were all geared up in our RV's and following the circuit. A couple of weekends ago was the Reno River Fest, with warm weather the river came up high. In years past Reno was known for being really great but shallow hole, not this year the featureturned into a deep wave hole.














The freestyle event was difficult because you had to be on your game to land a trick with out flushing. The women's comp was a close race between Ruth and Emily and Erin and I had a close race for 3rd by just 5 points. In the ladies 1st Ruth Gordon 2nd Emily Jackson 3rd Erin Clancy 4th Haley Mills and 5th Devon Barker. The newest member to the CKS family Hannah Kertesz represented and won the juniors division which was mixed with guys and girls! The me
ns finals consisted of 1st Steven Wright 2nd Eric Jackson 3rd Dustin Urban 4th Clay Wright and 5th Craig Kleckner.


Next Event was slalom through 22 gates on the south channel of the river. I decided to try out my skills in a 1960's slalom boat. The course was pushy because of the high water and a couple of tough moves. I am still working on my sick slalom skills.




















On the last day of the event Mike Tavares competed in the 3mile down river SUP sprint and he dominated the race coming in 3rd on a 10foot inflatable C4 board and close behind 1st and 2nd place that were paddling race boards.




Now on to boater-cross which was a awesome event full of carnage and suprisingly no injuries. It was a short mass start sprint but the hard move you had to make a gate which lead to broken paddles, swimmers, and great entertainment.





After Reno in route to Green River,
WY we stopped and caught Riverdale wave at awesome flow of about 3,600 cfs! The locals said they have never paddled this wave a such a high flow. The wave was big bouncy and a welcome change from paddling so many holes. Check out the video of Mike Tavares, Elaine Campbell, and I shredding.

Now I am in Green River, WY practicing for this weekends competiton. Next stop Buena Vista for Paddle Fest, I can't wait to see all the folks and CKS!
