Awesome!

That boat looked under inflated.

And I can't believe the passengers held on even that long!

Hole-E-Chit. You know it's rowdy when your thwart gets ripped out.

I have to wonder if that boat would be e punched it if it were properly inflated.

I think the under inflated helped with the fun and damn near folded the boat in half

Yeah, and watching them drop into the hole I couldn't help but think that none of those custys had any clue what the guide was taking them into. Did the guide tell them, "Ok, after we punch the first wave, then we're going right into a second hole that's going to beat the shit out of you and you'll almost certainly be swimming after it's over. So watch out for the crocs and hippos when you're in the water, and hold onto your paddles!"

The boat was definitely under inflated for that run/rapid. I am not sure if that company always runs their rafts soft..... if not, then it seams like a negligent act in my opinion.

What a ride though! Yee haw!
