CKS presents… King & Queen of the Wave 2010

A fun and friendly event for all the beginner and amateur kayakers to come out and showcase their skills for an attempt at awesome prizes and no one will leave empty handed.

The event will be held at the “Downtown Feature” in the South Main area in Buena Vista, CO on July the 11th (2nd Sunday in July). With an ample spectator seating down at the boat ramp, you will be able to cheer on your favorite upcoming competitors. Registration will begin at 9 am and events start at 10 am. The day will be on a rolling schedule, so be sure to come a bit early to get signed up.

At this competition there will be 3 different events. The day will start at 10 am with the Simple Slalom Race, next up is the fun Freestyle Competition and 12 pm, and finishing up the day is the King & Queen of the Wave Event. Each event will have a $10 fee or you can choose to do all 3 events for $20.
The slalom race is a simple slalom course set up and winner with the best time wins. We decided to shake things up a bit with the Freestyle Competition though. There will be a Preliminary Round with the competitors being judged in the standard fashion. (Scoring card located on next sheet). The top 6 scoring competitors will move on to the Finals where the winning individual will be decided upon by a game of horse style competition. This will be a game of BOOF. Basically if you get all 4 letters you are boof’ed out of the competition.

The last event is the King and Queen of the Wave. There will be heats of 3 competitors that will charge the feature at once. The top individual in the feature will move on to the next round. Once the last male and last female competitor are upright, they will be claimed the victorious winners! It’s going to get crowded in there, so hold on!

We look forward to seeing everyone come out for a fun event out here on the Arkansas River right next to Buena Vista!

Freestyle Competition Scoring:
Maintained Front Surf- 1 pt
Side Surf- 1 pt
Spin- 2 pts
Cartwheel- 2 pts
Splitwheel- 3 pts
Loop- 4 pts
5 seconds or more of Face Surfing with Roll- 5 pts
Swim- 0 pts + Bootie Beer (0nly if you are 21+ of course)

Lil play and surf sess in BV at the boatramp feature.

The features down here are super friendly, and will be perfect for a beginner/amateur event.

The water has been holding steady and the park is good to go for the King and Queen of the Wave event this weekend. It's going to be a great weekend with the Collegiate Peaks Music Fest and then the kayaking event.

We'll see ya out here!

In terms of the freestyle scoring, is the face time surfing only applied if you roll up and stay in the hole because that doesn't look like it would hold and upside down boat?

The cfs has come up a bit, along with the foam pile. There is a pocket in there you should be able to pull it off. If you get close (+/- a second) and then roll up outta there we'll give you the points. We're not going to as strict as the nationals judges here, we're just looking to pull off a fun event for everyone.

Some other questions we've had from people:

Do you have to be in a slalom boat for the slalom race-
Nope, you can be in whatever boat you want to be.

If my kids are racing slalom, can I go down the course with them?
Absolutely, feel free to guide them and give em a lil bit of coaching along the way.

Can I borrow a boat from CKS to do the comp?
CKS can do a cheap rental fee, but you must be a Class II paddler with a solid roll. Inquire about this for more details.

What if I want to SUP board this?
Go for it, but watch out in the King and Queen of the Wave event- you'll be an easy target!

Is there safety for this event?
You bet, we'll have a safety duckey w/ ropes and kayakers helping out.

We could use a few volunteers to be a safety boater(s) and throw bagger(s). If you are interested shoot a PM our way. We can give some pizza and a beer from the Eddyline Brewery, also you can compete for free.

We need 5 max. Thanks!
