What's the name of the rapid below Seidel's Suckhole?

I ran it too far left yesterday...damn near flipped me. Good times!

Nothing wrong with flipping. If you avoid every hole, it's just class II.

One of the funnest rapids on Brown's if you ask me. Short, but sweet!

Here's a video of us running the meat this weekend. Definitely good times! It could easily flip a raft.

Nice vid! That's pretty much the line that almost flipped me.

I ran it the same day in a 14' and it seemed pretty stable. Seidels though was still exciting. What size boat did you have?

My buddy and I R-2ed Browns over 4th of July in a 13ft Aire. It was running around 3000 and everything in Brown's was pretty washed out, but Sidel's was a beast. We ran the left side but the rooster tail wave was so big it easily pushed us into the meat of the hole there.....flipped us in a heartbeat. It didn't matter that both of us are strong paddlers, just 2 guys in a big ole raft and the river had it's way with us......we loved every second of it, even trying to eddy out and flip it back over just above Twin Falls. Ah yes, it's good to be humbled. Good times.
