One rapid, 2 riverboarders, 2 different WipeOuts. On this day the river decided not to let us pass. Jesse almost makes it but ends up getting pinned on a rock, while I missed my intended line by an arms-length dropping into the rapid and end up spending 3 seconds in one hole and a very scary 12 seconds getting worked and recycled in the 2nd hole right below it.

I haven’t been held-down like that in a very long time. Its moments like these that should serve to remind us that while what we do is fun – it is not a game.
