holy shit.

i think watching a guy with a head injury/possible neck injury get pulled in by his helmet was as scary as him going over the falls like he did.

control the adrenaline and think clearly, people. fuck.

You all know that was at the Green Race right? So lots of folks were on hand. The guy in the video posted on boatertalk about the whole experience.

Link to Nick's story about his crash. It was during the Green race, and there was lots of safety. I guess it scared the shit out of me seeing an unconcious boater getting pulled in.

- Referencing the link below....

Here's an example of bad/ no safety. Seems they had the camera set up, but no ropes.


This guy takes a serious beatdown.




-edited to make it clear I was not talking about the Green video

pretty hard for an unconscious person to respond to safety don't you think Andy

I think I see a guy with a rope in the video. I don't think the boater would grab a rope, no matter how many are thrown at him.

Speaking of the second video posted herein:

I'm not the kind of boater who runs stuff where you need to set up a safety, generally speaking, but that second video looks to me like an example of what NOT to do when running something so gnar. I'm not trying to be accusatory, but it seemed from my inexperienced point of view that 1) the second boat should have been told not to proceed, and 2) the safety was poorly organized.

Both rope throwers didn't seem to be set in a position that they could avoid getting pulled off the high rocks into the water had they needed to get some serious torque to pull the guy in the hole out.

How am I wrong?
