Kanawha Falls HuckFest 2024

Originally presented by the minds behind Boof & Destroy, Corey Lilly and Josh Collins, this lifestyle event is back from the dead. Held in Gauley Bridge at Kanawha Falls, this event helps to celebrate our access to an amazing park & huck feature, with multiple drops, runnable at a variety of water levels. Composed of a freestyle trick competition, a slalom trash course, and a photography competition, we’re stoked to organize this event in August of 2024.

Freestyle Competition

Decisions about which drop will be used for which event will be determined based on water level and communicated prior to the event. The freestyle competition will give athletes a chance to show off their best tricks to judges who will reward points based on, technique, difficulty, execution, and finesse. If you think you may have the skills/experience to judge, please reach out to [email protected].

 

Slalom Race

Decisions about which drop will be used for which event will be determined based on water level and communicated prior to the event. The slalom competition is a timed race where racers will navigate slalom gates using features along a pre-determined course. The fastest time wins, but racers will receive time penalties for missing gates. Following the tradition of the first Huckfest the slalom gates will be created using trash found on and around the falls. If you want to be part of the course creation team, please e-mail [email protected].

 

Photography Contest

One of the reasons we love Kanawha is we can bring our non-whitewater friends and they can have fun too! Spectators (or competitors) are encouraged to participate in an event wide photography contest. Photo winners will be picked for the following categories: Freestyle Competition, Slalom Competition, Overall Event, & Best Carnage.
