Throwdowns are a series of FUN events aimed at bringing communities of recreational boaters together in the spirit of simple competition. These events allow for simple scoring and keep things light and fun. Points for front surfs, wathunks, paddle waves and the standard playboating moves make this fun for all. The categories allow for anyone to do well and we all judge each other. Prizes are not given to top rides, but are raffled off to all participants like door prizes.


Purple Hayes School of Kayaking is pleased to be invited to host these events here in Chilliwack . With the success of the Western Canada Throwdowns we are excited to host Throwdowns again here in Chilliwack.
