When: 2012-05-19
Where: Switzerland, Sernf, Elm

We are back! Again!

After the usual one year break, Elm in the heart of Switzerland will again become the mekka for whitewater fanatics, waterfall heroes and party animals. Get the marker out and put the 19th till 20th of May down in your calendar!

The past three editions of the „Straight down Striit“ showcased kayaking on a top level. Extreme paddlers like Honza Lasko (CHZ), Sam Sutton (NZ) and Michele Ramazza (IT cleared their calendars to compete, and even the event organizer Ron FIscher (SUI) usually finds his way to the starting line, even claiming two vitctories, to join the fun. The goal: to enjoy the party and the great times on the shores of the Sernf river. The heroes of the day and the heroes of the night mingle, jam, jazz and party into the late hours in the spirit of good times shared on the water.

„Straight down Striit“ race concept
The discipline is simply called Kayak Boater Cross. Two riders fight it out on a 500 meter class five whitewater section to get to the next round and claim the victory. The same system is used at the Fun- race on the class three section. This is an event made for the pros and the legends, the sofa-surfers and the up-and-comers. We wil even allow open canoing! There is a place for everybody at the Striit.. The actual highlight of the day is the spectacular Chinese Race. 50 paddlers scramble together on a 4 meter wide, class 3-4 river, to fight for a very special prize! Winner is not the first, nor the last, the winner is simply the one in the middle! There is a caranage-gurantee for this race, and we will pay you your money back if you did not get enough..

„Straight down Striit“ NACHSPIEL
A legendary happening since the first event in 2007. Party in a circus tent, surrounded by a real circus village. There will be live music and Djʻs. How do you really beat that? Afterwards you crash out in one of the real circus wagons for a well-earned sleepy sleep. The Chill-out breakfast and relaxed pricegiving on Sunday morning will let you forget about the hangover...
