Ben’s First Run on the Lickety Split

Ben’s First Run on the Lickety Split

After completing our 2010 Guideschool, and being checked off to run this portion of the Upper Kern, Ben Woodruff is seen guiding the first Lickety Split trip of his career. It’s not every guide who gets his first trip immortalized in digital pixels. Ben’s hitting the wave at Ewings straight and everyone is in the boat. Good job Ben, There’s nothing quite like having your first year as a guide be a Big Water year. Go Ben. It’s going to be a great year on the Kern. Ben’s a lucky guy. . . and so is everyone else fortunate enough to get on the water this summer.
