First Timer Westwater video

I posted on here a few weeks ago about my concerns of rowing Westwater for my first time. Well, the trip went great. I posted my gopro video of our run below. Forgive the terrible quality, my gopro is the first generation hero. And I don't know how to edit very well. Overall the trip was amazing, and I can't wait to do it again. I didn't really have any issues, I almost got thrown on Big Hummer, but the rest was clean lines. We had a mini me and a shredder flip, but they expected that. One boat in our group did get wedged at the top of funnel on some rocks, I believe trying to rescue the swimmers. They managed to get unstuck after a while. Thanks for all the advice for our first run.

That was a great video, great footage of the area for me. I haven't even set foot in Colorado or been east of Salt lake city into places like Moab yet. Great sound track as well.
Wishing I was on the river instead of surfing the web...

Not sure how, but he eventually was able to work the boat loose with some help from others in our group.
