HaHaHaHaHaHa, you're gonna laugh when you finally see this thing. Mother Nature, tired from creating such beauty down the road, decided to skip beauty and just create FUN here. Wow, Rere minute a lazy unremarkable stream wallows through boring sheep lands, then the next minute it morphs into a crazy natural amusement park ride. This is a 60m rock ramp which fans out the stream flow enough to make the whole pitch slide-able. Amazing...just slippery and pitched enough to haul ass, but gentle enough not to maim you in the process. Still, it's not for the overly do rush down the slope clutching you boogie-board for dear life, gaining speed, no chance to bail out or stop...and SPLASH! bounce along the top of the pool like a skipping stone! Laughing, you'll swim to the edge then hurry up the dry rock ramp so you can do it again...So Cool!

Bring all your friends, the more the merrier here. It's a sunny place, it's a photo-friendly place, lots of space to hang-out and picnic, lots of fun watching people eamp-up their bravado.

Don't come all the way here with a cheap boogie-board, or some sort of air mattress. Shoes and shirts help, especially your first rides. Dare ya to try kneeling!
