Interesting, anybody know the river/run? It doesn't look familiar to me, and they have dry suits on it looks like too... Is it a recent video?

Close enough, that's a pretty standard day. It's the biggest commercially run drop in America. A constant custy ass kicking all summer long

This sounds like a line that every raft company running class IV tells their customers. I wonder what it really is? Lava falls is way bigger in my mind. Gore Canyon (gore and tunnel rapids) are both bigger in my opinion. I'm not a rafter, but I have kayaked all the runs.

Awesome save by the guide! Nice job.
