high force attempt

Post by slop.surfer » Wed Jun 05, 2013 11:13 pm

http://www.flickr.com/photos/97046765@N04/8963971398/ this guy tried to kayak over high force on the tees, he says a grim stopper grabbed him and capsized him on the entry and he lost his paddle in the process. he managed to get into the eddy just before the lip and get out of his boat before jumping across the current and climbing out, his boat and paddle went over the falls. I met him afterwards at the bottom and gave him my email, asking him to send me the footage from his headcam, he sent me these pictures instead but never told me his name. thought this might interest a few people anyway
