Sea Kayak surfing SKOOKUMCHUCK NARROWS, WITH MATT ANGER.Kayak Touring - Dec 20, 2016
The Skookumchuck Narrows or "Skook", as it's known to most boaters, seems to be even more beautiful and exhilarating everytime you see it. At peak flows, whitecaps and whirlpools form at the rapids even in calm weather.
Each day, tides force large amounts of seawater through the narrows—200 billion US gallons (760,000,000 m3) of water on a 3-metre (9.8 ft) tide. The difference in water levels on either side of the rapids can exceed 2 metres (6.6 ft) in height. Current speeds can exceed 16 knots (30 km/h), up to 17.68 knots (32.74 km/h).
Here's a little sea kayak surfing with Matt Anger gliding and David Fusilli producing. Enjoy and thanks to the folks at P&H Custom Sea Kayaks for such amazing designs and allowing our paddles to look SO good!
