Brought to FIBArk in the fifties, the Olympic sport of whitewater slalom racing requires paddlers to negotiate a series of gates suspended over the river through the Whitewater Park in downtown Salida.

rules& regulations
  • Mandatory Equipment includes:

    • Coast Guard /ISO approved PFD

    • Helmet

    • Protective footwear

  • A minimum of 4 people must register per division in order for a purse to be awarded.

  • Athletes must wear competitor bibs outside their PFDs at all times.

  • Event organizers and whitewater rescue teams are not responsible for equipment rescue and/or equipment removal from the whitewater course should athletes lose their equipment during practice or competition.

Whitewater slalom places a premium on technical skill as paddlers are timed and penalized for missing, or even touching a gate as they pass through.
