Swims of 2010

April 12. Wow, mid April and already a swim.  Hope its not a sign of a bad year.  Entrance drop of Matson Canyon at low water is actually a little more challenging.  There is know eddy on the right to break down the rapid and a lot more holes in the lead in.  In my playboat, I hit the last  hole before the pour over entrance.  This hole started me in a back ender so I tried to boof the pour over while backendering, flipped got pushed left, tried a roll and missed.  Got pushed up against some undercut, sievy rocks.  Tried a couple of more rolls but couldn’t get up while being pushed into these rocks.  Swam, no gear or lifes lost.  Chris G also flipped but hit his first roll and was able to paddle away from the rocks.
