#2 is up and there ain't nothing bitter about flip flop Lemon. Subscribe to the channel if you like, or smash the comments section with the love (haters gonna get heckled!). Have a bunch of snippets ready to collate and edit. Tomorrows will be stepping away from the whitewater centre, going soulboating...

Impressive faff to paddling ratio. I normally recon on adding at least 30% for faff time but you easily surpassed that!

From ying to yang.

Quiet reflection on the soulful river Mellte, to the words of the Mac.

That's right up there in terms of my fave paddle vids. Total blinder.
Not sure if it's cuz of the happy memories or the film-making.
I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. Either way I think I'll dig my go pro out and make a Spilli edit on Saturday.

Thanks.

The river isn't all that scary, Lyndon sent a cracking dive off the viewing platform this summer. :D

Wow for the photo :)

That's because you weren't looking at 3 big portages and ~10 swims*!

* Obviously I'm not going to try to prove this by getting on the river.

It is when you cock up your boof and end up stuck on that second ledge stuck in the hardly known about small stopper that is on it! I've come to the conclusion that Mellte regulars have some sort of special levitation that gets their boats over the extremely shallow run in to that drop!

We crashed Sickline, I'm still asleep from the partying and driving.

What was I thinking?
Of course it's about the boat.
Next, new boat...
