There’s been some pretty happening stuff in Missoula the last few days. Not only was it Downtown Tonight last night, but since Wednesday Missoula has been hosting the US Freestyle Kayaking National Championships at Brennan’s Wave. Around 200 competitors have been in the Garden City this week trying their hand, and performing tricks, to earn a spot representing the US at the World Freestyle Kayaking Championships in Germany.

And we couldn’t be more tickled. It was such a treat to have something like this in Western Montana. To all the guys and gals that participated, we hope you come back and paddle our waters again soon. And keep bringing those tricks!

A few photos for your viewing pleasure.

Some random tidbits:
-A new wave, The Max, is being built on the Clark Fork River. Which means Missoula will have TWO play areas for kayakers in the heart of downtown.
Summer is here. Ah, yea.
-If you’re looking for a water based adventure/activity, consider 10,000 Waves Rafting & Kayaking. I did a kayaking trip with their guides a few weeks back. In three words: It was awesome.

Until next week, happy travels!
