3790cfs would be pretty intense for a noob on a paddleboard through there, right? Especially, with the water temp and weather being as cold as it has been lately? I have a buddy who is planning to go up there this weekend and I think I should steer him away, but I could just be getting old and grumpy.

Not that bad, but do Rancho to State Bridge instead. Yarmony is a bigger rapid on a paddleboard.

If he has right gear, cold should not matter. 3/2mm wet suit or drys suit with layers should be plenty and its suppose to be sunny and warm.

Yarmony gets big at higher water levels, probly not the best plan, a bad plan to padle solo if you are a "noob" , IMO.

I've SUP boarded Pumphouse to Radium but even at lower water every SUP boarder I've witnessed going through Yarmony has turned into a shit show.

I agree with everyone else, have him walk Yarmony and the rest will be fun!
