Surf trip on Lake Creek above the horn, Deadwood to large pullout above the horn. Approx 4 mile trip. Class 1, maybe a small and easy class 2.

Although this is a "winter" trip, it is in the coast range at low elevation and not the cascades - so a farmer john and paddling jacket is OK, but some kind of wetsuit or drysuit is needed. Gloves recommended, but not needed and wear your helmet.

Water levels should be on the low side, so it is good for everyone. Similar in difficulty to the N. Santiam below Mehama. We will spend our day surfing the many ledges along the way - small surf waves, nothing big and hard. Great for those short playboats. Even inflatables can surf these many many waves.

Soggy Sneakers: Lake Creek, Deadwood Creek to Tide -- except that we will be taking out above the horn - and cutting the trip in half, and eliminating all the hard rapids

Meeting at 11am on Sat, start paddling at noon. Details given in email. Should be 55 degrees that day with 40% chance of participation. A great first trip of the season.

Viking Braggot has a separate meeting room that’s quiet, and also has modern A/V equipment and great food and beverages. Of special note is their Tuesday’s Burger and Brew deal for $12.

Get there early to order food and socialize. Mark will be there with t-shirts and Soggy Sneakers, Ed. 5 for sale.

Hope to see you there!!
