Kayak Freestyle


Freestyle Kayaking, playboating, rodeo, whatever you want to call it, you will not want to miss it at Dominion Riverrock!

Competitors will show-off their biggest and best tricks in the Fishladder rapids just below the Potterfield Bridge as they astound judges and spectators alike for the highest combined score and chance for the championship.
