Lava flip

I know, I know, enough with the motor rig videos but this one has kayakers, oar boats (Maravias), and motor rigs (Hyside) working together...

We leapfrogged this group since Shinumo Creek and happen to show up at Lava together.

Last one.

I will be forever grateful for Hatch River Expeditions, they are amazing and helped us out after a flip in Hance, we were back on the river in no time! After our flip in Lava I was looking for them but alas they were no where in sight HAHA! I love those J-rigs, thanks for having our backs in the canyon.

The guy on the sticks did not T up to that lateral wave at all. May not have made a difference because of part of the wave cycle he hit it at. Breaking waves up stream onto your boat are always a bad thing IMHO.

True enough. The first boat hit the peak of the wave, and didn't appear to have a lot of momentum--but the T up made a clean run.

yardsells, BTW, I really liked the multiple camera views. Great edit.
