Nice!

The surf wave lokks fun & fast!

I had a first run in a new drysuit yesterday - pleased to say I nailed the gasket trimming - not stopping my circulation, yet easy enough to get on/off! Looks like my local isn't as exciting as yours, our surf wave is way smaller.

Looks like I missed a good day. Water looks high. Was anyone running the falls?

I scouted Elora on Saturday - too pushy at 100 for my comfort level.

Pat, you're missing some of the better features at the Gull, the Gull's top section is a tec class III/IV way too much fun! But the lower section can be just as fun, its a tec class II/III with most of that section class II. Just above Dan's first picture you'll see a pourover, there's this really cool micro eddy right above the pourover...... sorry big boat need not apply! :wink: The Taureau just fits! :D

Yeah, but as my cousin so correctly observed last week while bobbing in the North Pacific Ocean somewhere of the coast of British Colombia in some foul weather after getting tossed out of a perfectly good aircraft, "Ya can't pee in a dry suit!!!" :o :o :o

Air Force shit ... don't ask. :tsk: :tsk:
