Rabice invited us to sleep at home and next morning we woke up early to go to run the Castro Laboreiro. We wanted to make the two sections on the same day. Liam and we do not enter the river until after 12 noon.
We stay in Rabice's house, and next morning we drive to go to Castro Laboreiro Both sections run in the Same Day, We Went slow so we Entered in the river at 12 o'clock ..
|I've been waiting years to run this river!|

I got out of the kayak to record the second cascade, when suddenly I start to hear screaming, I turn and see my kayak was speeding down the river ... Turn on impact and turns when just arrived to pick it up, is very slippery and full of water kayaking, drag me into the mainstream. I have unbuckled helmet and not even know what to do, tie the hull and try catch me somewhere. I decided for the second, but it's all too smooth and resbalazido ... I see that inevitably I will run the waterfall swimming and kayaking next to me, just before it hit bottom fall and jump a few meters ahead to avoid falling into the stream or stay in the cave back.
|Mr. Word on the jump in question!|| || |
very deep and takes a while to surface, but hey I'm fine! After a few seconds I see Rabice that has been pulled away to take a cable! Touch my head to find that the impact has broken in half ... GoPro raging, chao
camera ... It took a long time yet to leave the river, as the kayak portage there is a word and you have to go find him, in short, an adventure of which are remembered for lifetime, sorry for the camera but hey, you have to see el de las cosas positive side, if Hizo daño nadie!
Update 1st Descent del del Umia coming really soon!
|La buena people from Portugal! Rabies, Jao y Antonio.|| || |
