StraightDownStriit and the Nookie foto kontest

Awesome is the the way to describe yesterday, we paddled, raced and partied 'til we couldn't stand up. StraightDownStriit is one of the hardest kayaking races on the calendar, challenging class5 rapids and high water meant every competitor had to work hard to get down the river.

Nookie team rider and event organiser Ron Fischer cleaned every line in style and took first place in the mens creekboatercross race.

The highlight of the event was of course the party and the Nookie foto kontest. The rules were simple enter your best three photographs of the event and win cash, the standard of entries was incredible and a big shout out to all the photographers who entered. Pictures paint a thousand words so without further ado the results of the StraightDownStriit Nookie Foto Kontest, applause!

Happy Boating
