White water returns

Oh yes the white water season has returned to the westcountry. Two trips on Friday with massive water levels was a great season opener. The Dart was nicely through the third arch at Newbridge so was lots of big bouncy wave fun.
Monday evening was a bit late getting to the river, putting on to the upper Dart at 7pm in dusk is not really the thing to do. However it was dusky untill we hit the broad ledges and the real meat of the run. A swift team descision to walk around Euthenasi falls and Suprise Suprise was welcomed by all as the lip of the drps could not be seen enough to hit a good line. Paddling out in the pitch black was a bit bumpy and Liam had some good rock/paddle interaction resulting in a set of snapped paddles. Add that to a set lost on Friday morning and hes not all that pleased. Still it washed the summers dust off!

An over night trip is on the cards for a few weekstime. Stay tuned for pics of that definatley!
