Whitewater in long boats

On Sunday Brian, Dean and I stopped at Topsail Beach.  Fresh water is backed up behind a cobble bar when its high tide.  When the tide drops the water runs out through  small channel that is evident in the above image.

When we were there the water was still running out.  We thought why not?  We carried our kayaks up from the beach and into the fresh water to run the "rapids".  I shot an almost 60 second clip of Dean making his way down to the sea.

We volunteered Dean to go first because he was in a plastic boat.  Brian and I followed without incident.  It was good fun.
