Is it the last bit of double drop from an unusual angle?

I am kind of going for a process of elimination now, but I'm sure I've paddled it and I'm sure it's in Voss so Jordalselva .

I was just talking about the Hiedi run last weekend. One of the best Italy has to offer.

Heres one with an added bit of beater.

Being pedantic I know, but I never heard the phrase 'sending' used in kayaking until maybe three or five years ago. I think it was used in skiing and biking before then. I might be wrong. It's still a cool photo.

"Sending" has been around in the climbing world for as long as I can remember...anyhow back to that rather excellent pic from River Militia....looks like quality granite...looks like like lowish light in the downstream direction..so West flowing perhaps....but it's not ringing a bell with me...

So granite, too big a volume for Italy ? So maybe Norway or Cali ? It's sunny so probably Cali ?

That made it much easier. 0-60, Hospital Rock, MF Kaweah

No!, wait I changed my mind, it's V-Slide on Hospital Rock...pretty much the same exact move.

So was the original photo a low water Chucks Drop?

I can see that I'm going to have to start posting some harder ones on here for *Guy*......

It is indeed Steepness, the first big rapid on the NF Payette.

Finally worked the angle out on your original 0-60 picture...that was bugging me...I should have known that instantly....paddler is nose left...that can't have ended well.......

Looks kinda SE US. I'm guessing French Broad, NC?
But probably not... that'd be a pretty obscure choice.
