Notes:

S-Kicker (yes, the S stands for just what you think it stands for . . .) is the second of the two rapids downstream of Cabin and upstream of Hydro that are run in a very similar manner:  from extreme river right to extreme river left, with the diagonal crossing initiated a few feet above prominent boulders.  Mike is sitting in an eddy waiting his turn to make the cut just upstream of the prominent triangular boulder.
