Yeah. the consistent high releases are a special thing. It made me dream about a scheduled releases of high water.
We dropped into the first dam drop at 1700 cfs. Its really thrashy in there and if you go a bit to surfers right it gets more symmetrical and you have to fight your way over the big pile and out of the hole. Haven't surfed it since then, just headed downstream to Hawaii 5.0.
I dropped into hollywood at higher water too, and it made my eyeballs bulge! Its thrashy. Somebody told me they called it the midget wrestler, a worthy name. It started auto cartwheeling me while upside down, but it wouldn't flush when you flipped upside down. I had to fight really hard to get out of it. For as second I wasn't sure if I could get out in the boat or not. I haven't had the desire to jump back in there. Not sure what causes the hole. Haven't looked at low water.
Hawaii 5.0 is the shit.
The last drop in the close in sequence has a good fluffy hole. Fun times.
There is one more feature down a ways by the dump or car crusher or whatever it is. It was a deep pocket wave that was a kick ass bucking bronco ride. Fun to check out too.
Enjoy it while it lasts.
