Haloween Week

Water levels are rather scary in their unusual height, well at least for this time of year. The Upper St. is still flowing at 20cms, a low but certainly floatable fow. Double Trouble is fun at these levels, even if cartwheels aren't possible. The Lower St. is also continuing at 30cms. Great fun as always.

It looks like Nathan and I will be heading out this Friday for a run down the lower. We will meet at the put in at 2:00 to 2:15, and expect to make it out in the dark.

We are also heading out today after school for a short run down the upper (Tuesday Oct 25th). You can meet at the Alternate School in front of DQ at 3:30.

Birch Hole

Birch Hole, lower st. mary 32cms
Originally uploaded by cgoble72.
Birch hole is a specatacular play spot on the Lower St. mary. Here it is at 32cms. It has a large foam pile split in two directions. Loads of fun, good surfing, spinning, and lots of other things I can't do.

The run on Friday was spectacular. The water was incredibly warm. There were tonnes of easy surf waves all over. The waves before Rain wave were quite good. There was also a number of other good ones every where in the top section. The dump was really small, but run no run was beautiful at these flows.
