    That flip and re-flip at about 2:15 was pretty wild. I really enjoyed it.

    Thanks skibum

    The best part is that the dude on the front left is still going for the paddle tap on the rock.

    Looks like they probably paddled the whole river with the bow in the air. There seems to be a lot of weight in the stern...

    We are not exactly talking skinny minis up front either.

    Is this Pillow Rock on the Gauley at lower flows?

    Speaking of Pillow Rock...

    I think that the human mind is unique among all other forms of life in that it can spontaneously create unique thoughts and provide unique behaviors. Instead of rewarding that uniqueness we, for some reason probably because of cultural and social necessity, we chastise unique behavior and reward conformity.

    Can you explain anymore about this line? Having never boated back east, I have no idea, but the guide looks like a chump in this video... driving the boat waaaay too hard river left, with a terrible ferry angle, and doesn't even go for the high-side (as opposed to the guide in that Alarm Clock photo)... just pretty much gives up.
    OOOOOOOHHHH, I'm the Juggernaut, bitch!

    Please don't blame it on the guide, that guy was amazing and has since moved on to guide on the CO river in the Grand Canyon this season. Another friend and I attempted to go high-side, but this whole situation occurred in about .5 seconds, not nearly enough time for everyone to react.

    Most of us knew we were doing so when the guide asked us how we wanted to take pillow rock, we told him to do whatever he wanted to do, so we took a more aggressive line than most. Apparently what happened was that since we had 3 guys on the right side of the boat, and only 2 on the left, one of the guys on the right had decided earlier that he didn't really have to paddle at all, and would just stick his paddle in the water without actually doing anything. We had done the lower the day before (apparently without him paddling at all) and when he saw us coming up on this class V the next day, he finally started paddling aggressively and that pushed us well off our intended line.

    I guess that's what happens when you take an inexperienced paddler into serious whitewater. He usually adapts well to situations like that, but having never been in whitewater before, he just kind of freaked out. We still had a great time though and that swim was definitely the most memorable experience of the trip.

    I have no doubt about it, we had already told him that we didn't care if we went for a swim...well, at least a couple of us didn't care. It was a good initiation for the rest of them though.
