Sluice is my local wavey, holey thing that we make do with as our go-to feature most of the time. It sees one, maybe two competitions a year and a a team trial event. It's probably not to risky, then, with over 50 entrants to say that last Saturday's Sluice Rodeo was the biggest competition to ever happen there. And it certainly delivered.
It took the format of a fun rodeo, Starting off with Junior men's heats and progressing it's way through very category, including an old-school rodeo and fun (no-spraydecks-allowed) boater cross with tunes blaring out the whole day, crowd cheering every competitor and everyone generally having a great time.
