Hand of God in Action

This wasn't planned at all, it just sort of presented itself. I wouldn't normally have gone for it but for the knowledge that this particular kayaker lacks an offside and was against the wall on her good side. Also, remember to boof.

Probably about 10-15 seconds. Enough time for the girl next to me in the pool above to remark "Ooh, she plugged it" (just based on what she saw from upstream), then for me to go around her headed upstream before joining the shot below.
