Says the guy from Utah, your rivers dried up months ago. I havent missed a weekend since I hung up my skiis. I was phishing for fools last night and caught my limit. Theres way bigger rapids and maybe a drop that gets run 3 days a year, but the biggest and baddest drop still goes to husum!

My daughter and I ran Husum Falls on a day that all the commercials were portaging. A guide said the violent stop at the bottom resulted in too many head/face injuries. My daughter's 12' cat completely submerged in the bottom hole, then shot completely out of the water without her.
I need to find those pictures. My 16' cat did fine. I would say it is taller and a tougher swim than Tunnel Falls (but I've only swam Tunnel).

Before this degenerates much further a toast to the obviously competent and badass river guide.

Oh c'mon. A paddle is worth much more than $15 if you need one and don't have it.

oh shit! i love when river guides start talking... as if they know how to do anything other than drink beer, bitch, grow beards, and fuck some mediocre college slags.

if bigger = taller, then husum is not the biggest in the US. sweet's falls and tunnel falls are each like 7 foot sloping drops, husum is probably taller. wonder falls on the big sandy is definitely taller, and gets rafted commercially. perhaps el horrendo on the russell fork is taller, but i don't know who runs that these days.

what's the steepest gradient that gets rafted commercially in the US? cherry creek? 5 falls on chattooga?

oh yeah, that was an awesome rescue. i hope the custie ponied up a couple benjamins.

Actually, from what I saw in the vid, I'm pretty sure he didn't give an F about the paddle. It just happened to float up there and was more in his way than anything else. The guide's mind was on the unconscious swimmer, as it should be. Props to the guide for quickly recognizing the danger and executing a good rescue!
