An Endless Wave



Last month I completed a 3 week adventure on the Colorado River, from Marble Canyon to Lake Mead. Prior to the trip my boat-mate told me about a standing wave him and some friends were riding with kayaks and sleeping pads and said I should definitely bring my mat. So I did. And here is some footage to prove it.

River water dynamics are a world unto themselves. The feeling of being sucked through the pour over & bashed about by the frothing, churning whitewater is unique to say the least. Like nothing I've ever experienced!

You can really see the mat accelerate with its minimal flat wake. Cool.

Ha ha!! It's like a treadmill for matters!

My goodness that looks fun! I've got to try it some day. That seems like a situation where you could really test out a quiver, and get familiar with some of the subtleties of the various mats, since the river provides such a steady waveform.
