Sturgeon Falls

Awesome weekend in Canadia. John and I drove up and met up with Zinger and Greg, who not only showed us around the waves, but proved to be great cooks and hosts. Instead of roughing it, we were eating gourmet meals and watching DVD's. Definitely not a bad deal. The river was a bit lower than I expected, so the waves were only 3-6 feet tall, but still absolutely rockin. Greg was perfecting his "floops" and backstabs, Eric was showing off on the waves, and John and I were surfing, spinning, hopping, and throwing ends when we could. Big, warm, DEEP, friendly features and luxury camping. What more can I say?

Verm at 60cfs

Started today by taking my nephews out to a lake to practice some flatwater stuff, then met Andy down at the verm for a little summer scrapin. Andy got to body surf donut for the first time, and I tried the rope swing down at fishermans. Then, I let some of the local kids try out my kayak. Good times. Unfortunately, I had my camera out of the case for a bit today and some water got in it. It stopped focusing down at donut, and now the lens motor seems to be dead altogether. So long, little camera.
