What an awesome paddle



 








So today Olly and I were planning on paddling the West Okement but on arrival saw the river level at Okehampton Castle (it was out of the banks) so we decided on Moor Brook instead. This is basically a ditch that I have been trying to do for years but it needs lots of rain and today was that day.

I could not stop smiling. It started as a grass and sheep slalom and ended with some grade 3 stuff that really you had to hold you line or you got attacked by gorse. We started higher than the recommended start and it is well worth doing that. Just below the grill across the stream at SX 587916. Just ride the flume to the end getting progressively faster and steep until the final rapid spits you out just above the exit bridge.
