Un-freaking believable! What an incredibly smooth jump off the cat, like's you're skipping across a little creek, and then you don't even come out of your cage when you flips. Nice work, nice level head.

Cool to see it at that level, I didn't like what I saw last Wed at 4.6'.

lol - that is freaking hilarious, I am sad that I wasn't there to witness it myself. I guess you will be looking upstream before pulling into the current from now on

WOW. I'd heard the story about your run from a buddy of mine that was there with one of the other groups and have been looking forward to seeing this footage. I understand you hopped off onto a level concrete diversion structure - what a prefectly placed landing platform, like a sidewalk where you needed placed it by divine providence! Don't want to think what it could've been like if there'd been underbrush or jagged rocks on the bank - yikes!

I guess this is also a pretty graphic justification for the straps on the ends of your tubes that all the Idaho catboaters have, eh?

Thanks for posting!
