Recovery?

And that was some interesting scenery toward the end as well. Looks like the the rest of the crew was in yardsale mode.

yea one boat flipped, 4 had good runs. The rest was another group whose passengers decided to walk, only end up swimming along the shore on the left...

Very entertaining and not a complete shitshow. did he run son of lava?

Did you?

15 seconds to unhook a throwbag is way too long. And where it was attached? You need to have that shit accessible. When upside down too. That is why I have one on bow D Ring and both oar towers. FWIW.

Good video. Its funny to see what your passengers do when you're not on your boat. Has me thinking.


So you guys walked back up to tequila beach? I watched it go by in the video thinking damn, they missed tequila beach, the only real blunder in a lava run.

I was surprised that he hadn't done at least some rowing up to that point. I know my passenger would have at least had some flatwater strokin in by lava.

Thanks for sharing and opening yourself up to the buzzards. I did have to chuckle at your passenger's lack of reaction. Lava always makes things interesting and better too far right than going into the ledge hole. I've seen the ledge hole do some strange magic (and none of it good) to rafts that go in there.
