The commentary is junk, but the video is carnage gold. Man, do I miss the Gauley.

Wow, simply wow.

Not sure if they were trying to run the meltdown or what but that is pure awesomeness.

Just saw this call out on facespace

"Attention, Noah's Ark guides and staff. For several years now, a posse of your guides have been coming to run the Gauley here in West Virginia. As a long-time local here on my home river, I generally welcome others from out of state or country to enjoy one of the most beautiful and wild rivers in the world. But I've been watching you guys. Literally every day you are out here, I see guides with very little water reading and boat control skills doing stupid stuff on the river that most first year trainees have the sense not to do. As a video kayaker, part of me relishes seeing your flotilla getting ready to drop into a major rapid, because I know that an epic shit-show is about to take place, and I run for my camera. This past weekend, you did not disappoint. However, you have left 2 of your rafts pinned underwater in major rapids, creating additional hazards in rapids already known for their willingness and ability to cause serious injury and death. And after your epic crashes, you pile up onto the rocks and party and throw food at one another, leaving your detritus for others to clean up. You can not show up on a world class river like the Gauley(or any other river, if truth be told) and act like that. Observing your post-disaster hilarity at Sweet's Falls, you clearly find this an amusing party. But given your at-best mediocre level of river skills, it is a statistical probability that you are going to kill somebody sooner than later. Clean up your shit, learn to read water, learn to guide rafts. Then you will be welcome here on the Gauley. Until then, stick to rivers that suit your ability level. And God help your customers."

Classic.........Never seen a boat disappear like that one. Would you call that a pin? or a wrap? or both?

Maybe God will give them their boat back if they prey really hard.

Considering they were hitting their paddles on their head and yelling meltdown before they dropped in, I think they were going for the meltdown

I'm not an experienced boater, but, wouldn't it be better to point the bow downstream in a situation like that?
