Just thought I’d let you all in on the festival that happened this past weekend! First off "I LOVE RENO" is a common term which is very justified! This year was one of the most competitive years. This year also had the most people with over 33,000 people throughout the weekend as well! Jay Kincaid came off in First with a sick ride. In fact Jay actually jumped the gun on kirk and cut him in line on accident when he was in prelims. He was so focused he said, "I saw the thumbs up and just went". None the less a 150+ point ride was the outcome!
The top 6 Men were:
The Top 4 women were:
The boater cross was taken by my good friend Jud Keiser with Andrew Holcombe taking 2nd followed by Josh Bechtal!
This was also the first time I got my hands on my VOZ helmet. Im super amped on how light it is so if you get a chance to check em out try one on. Word has it that CKS will be having them for there CKS festival! (Check out Kayaks, Kayak Accessories, Gear, Fishing Equipment, Kayaking Accessory
for more) The rest of the VOZsports team did super well as well! It was great seeing all my friends including Matt Solomon who was judging the event! It was awesome seeing Hobie there as well on the microphone and Mike Mathers throwing on the Daggers DSI safety classes!!
If anyone hasn’t had a chance to make it out to this event, its worth doing it! The event is super well organized, and is just plain HUGE! The amount of talent on and off the water is worth it alone! The Saturday night party proved to be a worthy night. All in all im amped and can’t wait to get back to Colorado! Im glad to see our sport evolve into such great events such as this! If you all need a vacation what better place then Reno!
Just thought I’d keep you all posted!
