Kayaking a dam spillway

2008-11-19 19:36:37.87482+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Authorities are condemning the act of kayaking a 300' dam spillway in Wales. Woot! Look at how high that first guy skips off the hole at the bottom! And, damn, if that second guy has any sense he had to change his underwear after his run, those low-head hydraulics created by flat ledges can be deadly (because the upstream ledge is uniform, there's no irregular spots in the hole through which you can escape).

Wow, I'd love to do that. Absolutely awesome looking. Also probably a tad safer than what I normally do in the Kern River anyway...
