SE Creekin' Update

So unfortunately it's been dry for the last couple weeks, but at least I've had the time to edit video and reflect on the great kayaking from before the drout.

On Daniel Delavergne's birthday we all headed down to the notch to catch the 'birthday eddy' which is a scary eddy poised just above Gorilla. It was around 150% and 5 people stepped up to catch it. Then we gathered around and watched as Toby poured some of Daniel's ashes into the notch. I didn't actually know Daniel, but it's awesome that a group of people gathered on his birthday and ran the shit as a tribute to him.

The birthday eddy= a good mix of precision and cojones.

The Magnum really whips around into the eddy nicely. Here's Chris Gragtmans on his first run.

Carving in.

Peeling out into the notch

A week or so later, we got some good old fashioned high-water green.

Gragtmans, large and in charge.

Walking up for another go.

A couple weeks later, the water dissipated and we had no other option but some low-water triple falls. Clayton Gaar and I headed to Dupont for some park-and-huck.

Second drop

Hope you enjoyed the post, don't forget to floss.
