Yesterday afternoon I ran Oh-be with a Jason from Boulder and got served with the most pain I've ever got from kayaking. We put in above the eight footer to slide and that was all good. Then it was time for the 25 footer. Jason went first and had a good drop. Then I went, and despite driving left, I went further right than I should have. After plunging through the water a few feet I took a blow in my right ass cheek that reverberated throughout my whole body. I immediately thought my back was gonna be broken. After a few minutes I figured it was ''O.K.'', just hurtin hard, and then the rib pain kicked in. Coughing, sneezing and laughing all suck. Hiked out. Vicodin. Probably will be hurtin for weeks. After misplacing my sprayskirt I had used my older leakier one. Maybe the weight of water in my boat made me go deeper. Maybe the high flow made me go deeper. In any case, it hurt like hell! Next time I'll drive a LOT harder left with more left angle. Stay away from the right.
