Iâ€™m glad the victim turned out ok. That is some scary stuff. I also dislike the cheat on Woodall, but Iâ€™ve come to the conclusion that itâ€™s the most prudent way to go at levels over 1.5-1.6. Iâ€™ve run the left side of the hole up to 1.8-1.9 and have never had trouble there, but the risk to reward ratio just isnâ€™t there for me at those levels. Sure the sneak is bony under 2 feet, but thereâ€™s a lot of other great rapids on section 4. Thereâ€™s no need to risk myself or my crew just to run one drop that honestly isnâ€™t even that cool. Iâ€™ve seen too many people flush out of there barely alive, including my best friend.
For the record, all of the surfs Iâ€™ve seen at Woodall (barring ones) have been from people running the right side of the hole. Its too easy to get too far right and spin out. Itâ€™s my opinion that if you arenâ€™t comfortable running the left side of the hole, you shouldnâ€™t run it at all.
