HenTag for true beginner

Post by twowheeltony on Sat 23 Jun 2012, 2:40 am

Can a true beginner make the run from Hennefer to Taggarts without many issues?

Well that all depends on the paddler. We've taken capable beginners down quite often with no drama at all. Others have had issues and have swam a bit. Go with a good group and follow someone through the top rock garden and you should be ok if you do your part. The club runs it every Tuesday at 6pm if you'd like to come along.

Croyden to Taggart is a more forgiving first-ever run; then you putin downstream of the Hennefer rock garden. Then go for Hennefer to Taggart.
Have you done some eddy turns at Crystal wave?

Have not been to the Crystal Wave. Have only tried them a few times on the Provo.

Peel out!

I discovered that catching the eddy coming down river on the C.Wave (and all the other little ones before it) was easy. The "Peel out" from the C.Wave was odd for me. I was given a link to a video that demonstrates the maneuver and I have been trying to digest it sense. Hoping to get up there tonight and work on that some more. What is the closest pond/lake around Farmington in which to try rolling?

Don't know what ponds you are allowed to kayak in, or which are cleanest, around Farmington; there is a small pond at the mouth of Farmington canyon tho; and a few others to the north.

Crystal wave is probably the next closest place with clean water.

Late yesterday evening we put in right above Crystal wave, and attained (paddled upstream) to Wall Ave. Its easy class II going downstream, but its a real workout to paddle upstream, and you have to work the eddies. Watch out for fishhooks.

Tyson, If Donaca is out for Hentag I'll have room for you. I have Titans and Big Dogs if you want to demo one.

Skiing Naked!

Post by twowheeltony on Wed 27 Jun 2012, 12:36 pm

Well, last night was awesome, after I stopped shaking. I would liken last night to skiing naked. At first it sounds like a good idea but by the time you get to the bottom you might have a few regrets. That being said, I would like to thank Daniel and Jeff for all the pointers. And a huge thanks, and apology to Steph, who I got coffee from everyday without knowing her name, for putting up with this 'tard who should have done some pool sessions first. I'll be back!

Tony you are doing good. With time, and instruction you will progress fast, and you will make all of our videos look like crap with your mad video skills.
