Sea kayak on union chutes

Word to your mother, brothers and sisters.

So I own a sea kayak and a jackson 2fun. The sea kayak's name is moreFun I was thinking it would be super to get on the moreFun and have even more fun surfing Union chutes. Problem is that moreFun is made of fiber glass. Don't want to thrash the boat, ya know.

Do you reckon ....

The chutes is not too rocky for a glass long boat?
The chutes still has big enough waves for a 16ft boat to surf on?

Thanks y'all

If you go down the main chutes, you are fine and won't hit rocks.

The flow is down a bit. I don't know if the epic wave is still there at drop #4--probably not.

With their fast hull speed, you can surf some waves in the long boat that short boat people can't. But, be careful about surfing the holes. Your nose will be pushed under, the current will grab the nose and push it under more, and you may hit rock.

Have a good brace and a good roll at Union.

Why not a Sea Kayak?


I would think Union Chutes would be a good place to get rid of that sea kayak.
Be sure to take the 2 by 4 paddle.
Try not to blow out a shoulder.
