In the backyard of Washington D.C. where the Potomac River skirts town lies a whitewater wonderland. Among the many features that mark this section of river sits Mathers Gorge, home to the O-Deck standing wave. Skip Brown is a dedicated explorer of these parts, and as such he has the knowledge it takes to score it at its best. Here he is on the O-Deck, reveling in the fruits of local knowledge and providing some old fashion vicarious fun for the rest of us.

More fun on the Potomac.
