Last time I paddled in there with water like that, I was amazed at how many cig lighters were recirculating in this one eddy. There was like 20-30. I was like "do that many people just chuck their lighters out the window when thier done?"
I also remember skipping along on that big dirty wave. Being dirty can be fun.

I must have just missed you, Ian. Despite the nasty water, it was such a pleasure to surf (and sometimes only attempt to surf) a wave whose pile was higher than my head. Crazy how fast it went up and came back down.

I only saw four other boaters out there, which was pretty surprising. Seems a lot of Denver paddlers are afraid to work flex their immune system muscles.

Earplugs, nose plugs, a few shots of whiskey afterwards and it's good clean fun. I got the last of the goods as it was coming down. Saw a couple other of the usual suspects on Trestle, but otherwise quiet out there. It was the only fun bouncy wave hole action on the Front Range all year. Thanks for staying off of it.
