TVF 2008 Creeking Competition

Simple concept - Fall farther than anyone in the country in 8 days and receive 6 boats compliments of Dagger, and a ton of other gear! TVF was the original creekboating competition of this type and has been growing "slowly" each year to fix bugs and most importantly to keep the competitors as safe as possible. With that being said, I would argue TVF is the hardest kayaking competition in this history of kayaking. The Stanley Steamers led by Jeff West have dominated this comp on the east coast all 3 years so far. Jeff West isn't afraid to go to the steepest, fastest thing running, drop a vert mile while paddling till little skin is remaining on the palms of his hands, rest a day, and do it again two days later. Last year there were just under 150 competitors in TVF.

TVF 08 will be kicking off on the East Coast this Feb. The exact date will be when conditions are optimal, once started it will remain going for 3 months. The West Coast Arenas are listed on the site, they will open the first day that conditions seem optimal to begin a 3 month window.

This will be the 4th year we have hosted this competition and we're happy to widen the format a bit. TVF was created as a way for East Coast boaters to settle the score for who has the steepest backyard and the best boaters to navigate it. So now lets widen things.

The only reason rules are added to this comp are safety and to create an even platform for creekboaters in different arenas to be on an even platform. 3 months is given to each arena in the country since that's the amount of time that the region has run off.

Instead of explaining everything here please visit the site:
It's really simple though, get some of your best friends to put a team together, go out and creek on some steep terrain, paddle FAST, have really good shuttle logistics, might even want some shuttle bunnies, bring backup paddles and boats (last year this comp was responsible for 20 boats breaking and approx 15-20 paddles), etc, etc!
