A Weekend in Idaho

We cruised over to Idaho for Ryan Scott's video premiere in Boise for Northwest Video Scrapbook VI, which was a great time in itself aside from kayaking. The crew consisted of myself, Keel Brightman, Ryan Scott and Lana Young and Mike, a Boise loco. We started out Saturday morning with a 2 hour session on Climax Wave on the Payette. The wave wasn't at optimal flows, but still nice enough to throw some huge blunts and have some fun! Later that day we hit up the South Fork of the Payette in our playboats and laughed at each other stern squirting down the run, all feeling a bit hung over from the night before, which also had some really fun play on it! Sunday we decided to hop on a creek that has only been run a hand full of times and it turned out to be a little low, but still very runnable and absolutely breathtaking. This run, the Succor, was 6-7 miles of pure beauty. It had some good rapids, no huge drops, but continuous throughout and fun. We put on about 1 in the afternoon and got off the river about 8 o'clock and started our 5 hour trek home to Hook River. A great weekend!
