Whitewater Kayak Competitions
Includes BoaterX, ShredderX & Freestyle Competition
Whitewater kayak competitions will kick off at 4p on August 24. The first competition is BoaterX. Whitewater kayakers will launch off the bridge at the east end of RIVERSPORT Rapids and race side-by-side, navigate gates, execute combat rolls and elbow their way to victory. Next up is ShredderX, where Shredders will battle it out through the whitewater channels. The Freestyle Competition will wrap up the day’s events, with athletes performing tricks and maneuvers in hopes of earning the most points. Registration includes all three events.
Proceeds for the Whitewater Kayak Competitions benefit the Pine Creek Gauge Fund and the Oklahoma City Boathouse Foundation.
