Grand Canyon Lava Oct 2012 Video

Hi All,

Just wanted to share. This is a video our friend Jason Hall took on our recent Grand Canyon adventure. We launched Oct 16 (with 16 people total) and took out at Diamond on 11/3/12. We had 7 rafts, 6 kayaks and 2 SUP boards with consistant flows 8,000 cfs. Epic gorgeous weather, no injuries and no illnesses. We loved every minute of it and can't wait to someday go back.

Those who have been there will understand why I love this video so much.

Those who have not been there...need to find a way.


Patty Pinkham

Here is a second video (also captured by Jason Hall) of our friends John and Erin Melrose and their surf in Lava on a 16 foot cat for 14 full seconds.

Your color choice is not readable on an iphone unless you quote it

Very nice. We launch in 14 days. One raft two kayaks 25 days.
What editing software did you use?

Those videos were nothing but Lava Love

Bad ass surf! Do cats ever flip on the Grand Canyon?

Glad y'all had fun, what a special place!

Will do. You have yourself a great trip!!!

And now, back to the thread.....Yes! Always with a "How did that happen?" And are usually easier to unflip than a round boat. I thought the one in the video had a chance at it when they started to get sideways. Came out of it nicely with a good story to tell.

They are going backward because the driver shifted into
Reverse unintentionally.

He wanted a little more Lava Love.
