This video is awesome

Little White Salmon in of my top 3 favorite runs in the states. Not sure what the flow is but probably 4.5 feet or 5 feet. The guy wearing the helmet cam is 18. Even at low water the run is challenging. Most people consider low on this run below 3.3, and high above 3.8. Enjoy.

A bit unsure too. It is wishbone falls. At first I thought he was stuck in the hole at the bottom but may have flipped on an eddyline too. I'm sure he rolled up and fought his way out. I'm think it would be pretty hard to keep the boat from floating downstream after a swim anyways.

What is more amazing is him surfing out of horse shoe (3:00) with such ease. There are plenty of videos on YouTube and Vimeo of people swimming out of that at low water and getting recirced and I've also talked to people who have been roped out of there were thankful to get the rope.

I couldn't imagine swimming there at those flows. You would be fighting for your life between Horse Shoe and the bottom of the last rapid, Stove Pipe. There is an undercut cave that the water naturally flows into below Stove Pipe (which is why they boof at that weird angle straight downstream).

Watched it again...the hole at 3:00 isn't horse shoe. That is the shot after. Still pretty sick.
