    No, white water rafting. Come to Oregon sometime and I'll take you down the river.

    Richard,


    My idea of "white water rafting" was (when I was younger) using one of those large oars your use (we called them "surf boards" ) and riding 20 foot plus waves during hurricanes ... Now THAT is "white water rafting" if there ever was such a thing ...



    Cowabunga!

    Richard Have you ever rafted the deschutes river above sherars falls N/E Oregon ? I did that back around 1977 had a blast.

    This is a link to a video of the Falls. very fast river. The wood framed stands that you see are Indian Salmon Fishing platforms.

    Sherars Falls, Deschutes River, Oregon videos from oregon videos on webshots

    Ron, we do the Deschtes @ Maupin every year and yes, it is a blast.
    Jerry, NOW that sounds like a ride!!!!! If I get over to FL I'll make sure it's hurricane season and we can "shoot the curl" gnarly dude!

    Rick,

    The reason he delayed cutting across the face of that wave was so the white water would 'clean his shorts out' at the end of his ride. Can't go back to the beach with 'a load in them'.

    Just watching that surfer (I've seen other video of others riding waves like that) makes the adrenaline pump up a notch, thinking 'Dang! That fool waited to long to cut across the face and shoot the curl!' 'That fool' made it through the first of the break, but it never did show him coming out at the end, I think he wiped out near the end of his ride.

    But he did better than I ever could have - no doubt about that! Doing that takes a REAL surfer, and I was not one of them.

    I saw a thing on TV the other night (a promo for a show or something) about surfers in the Gulf at Texas. Huh? In the Gulf? At Texas?

    Yep. They ride a boat out into the Gulf, the boat turns in behind the wake of the large freighters, the surfers jump into the wake with their boards and ride the wake, which is pretty good sized and makes for a great wave, which goes on and on and on and ...

    Rick,

    I couldn't find a video, but here is a web site about it.

    Freighter Surfing - Hang Ten, Dudes and Dudettes - Surf's Up!

    And here is one from the 1960s where they did it back then.

    Kinda runs in the family now huh Dad?
    Guys/Gals, reading your posts, I'll tell ya, this guy is a great captain, "rough and ready".
    Now, for me, I am attending Chemeketa CC Building Inspection Technology Program, not for Home Inspections, for local, state, and federal jurisdictions. A long arduous course in Code and compliance, but still better than swinging iron all day, with an Associates to boot.
    This looks like it will be a good site to visit often and talk code.
