    Sue me if I'm crazy

    So the LA River is extremely high.

    (Refer to that link, it has videos of how high it is)

    Who other brave/stupid soul/s would like to ride it with me?!

    I'd go for it. Stuff like that is a total blast! My first and best ski experience was on a 440 downstream of a dam on the Colorado River. WOT and zero velocity relative to the riverbank...

    If you die doing it then you'll have died with a smile.

    Ur a pu$$y if you don't. Like nike says, just do it. I've ridden in mud puddles, and I've ridden on some stupid stuff. That's why I have a lot of skis. Sexy skis for good water, the ugly sisters for the leftovers.

    Please make sure you have a life jacket, maybe a helmet, a friend, and someone who knows where to find your body.

    EDIT: and either a gopro or a shore bound friend to film it!

    Re: Sue me if I'm crazy

    I'm sure you guys want an update. I tried to get some people to go locally and no one else was as bored as me. Instead I'm getting ready to go eat some great curry instead.
    Trust me, I'm as disappointed as you guys are. Tomorrow may be a possibility though still. We'll see.
    Not something I'm going to do alone and without some gear of course.

    Re: Sue me if I'm crazy

    The best riding in SoCal used to be the Palm Springs Ponds.

    Back in the late 80's there were at least 9 of these ponds, and you
    skied in between nearly 100 windmills. They were about 3 feet deep,
    and protected from the wind.

    If you were a daredevil, there were several spillways you could jump.
    You had to start fast in the pond, enter the spill way at speed, and
    stay on plane through only a few inches of water.

    Then jump down 8 to 10 feet into a lower pond!



    Bill M.

    Most of the old windmils are missing, but their pads are still in the pictures.

    Horsepower == Speed, RPM != Speed
