Bubble Baba Challenge

2010-08-31 22:15:19.519226+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

For the most part, I'm okay with no longer being a river guide. There are things that are fine when we're self-destructive twenty somethings that I'm cool with having grown out of, even if it doesn't mean scaring the crap out of the rookies by surfing Grumpy's, or swimming into Double-Suck when most paddlers are happy just to get through it in their boat. "Yeah, that rapid that scares the hell out of you? I body surf it for fun on Sunday mornings."

There are, however, occasions where I get little twinges of "damn, I wish I were back on the Ocoee" (and willing to take the punishment and in good enough shape to swim the thing), as is the case every time I hear about the Bubble Baba Challenge, because running the Ocoee on an inflatable sex toy would be as badass as body surfing Double-Suck.

Violet Blue has a roundup from this year's race with YouTube video from a participant's perspective.
