bridges run

I am hitting up poudre this weekend and planning on some of the IIIish runs. Is the bridges run straight forward, is the killer bridge move that hard? I keep reading about this "killer bridge" and that consequences are dire and it is making me somewhat tentative.

Any beta is appreciated.

it's pretty straightforward. just look at it on your way up to the putin. there are a couple of breaking waves to punch through, and then a small wavetrain afterward, but nothing to really worry about. just be sure to take the left side of the bridge, and you should be golden.

No worries on the bridges but beware of the hole developing at the RED barn. You will want to avoid that. 3.5ft on the rock this morning, it's finally becoming sporty. Biggest hole I hit was actually on lower mish.

Just got off P-view/bridges and it's gettin better and better. Couple of great surfs. I guess if you hit that redhouse suckhole in the absolute worst spot, sideways, or upside down it might get a little sticky but I've never even had that thing come close to sucking me off

That hole-sarah's hole, guidehole...whatever you call it...on lower mish has gotta be the stickiest on the lower poudre. Just below mishiwaka, the first rapid. If you dont nail it right down the middle...i've seen some pretty good boater friends swim worries though, there's a lovely pool below it. Check out lower mish or upper rustic if your doin bridges this weekend, those runs are on par with it. should be fun weekend
