The Whitewater Awards is a platform that highlights and showcases the best in the world of whitewater kayaking from freestyle, big rapids, waterfalls, expeditions and river stewardship. The Awards are peer voted by a group of nearly 200 of the world’s most elite whitewater kayakers to honor, celebrate, and expose the incredible talent in cinematography, photography and athleticism within the sport. As paddlers, many of the rivers we paddle / places we go are only visible through photo and video to many people. This night is to celebrate the talented people behind the lens documenting all those amazing places, as well as the athletes pushing the sport to new highs.

The Whitewater Awards will be held at the Egyptian Theatre in downtown Boise, Idaho on June 15th, 2017!! Check out the website for more information.

The announcement of the Wild Cards will then take place to lock in the final racers accompanying the Elite Division racers on Saturday !

Everyone is invited to party in downtown Boise, ready to celebrate the kick off of the North Fork Championship VI!
