Flip Lines And Rescue Tape

When I became a raft guide in the late 90’s the way in which we were shown to right a raft posed significant danger.  It basically  meant utilising the drain holes in the raft by sticking your finger through and using your knees to flip the raft.  Get it wrong and you would be seriously hurt.

Columbia River Gorge - Pow Day

An incredible amount of rain fell over night and turned our dry river beds into raging brown torrents. We went hard as our old “off the couch asses” could go and got 2 LW laps, and the highest Trout-Wind run I’ve ever done. It was an epic homecoming after being in South America for 6 weeks. Thank you pacha mama for providing once again!
