    Doesn't look very steep in the photo but we used to really get some serious speed and make a huge splash at the bottom.

    Hey I remember doin that as well, but we ended up using a huge tractor tube with at least 8 of us teenagers on it, especially when there was a bit of slime on the spillway.
    We would all get on it and bounce on it at the top to get it planeing and then we would absolutely fly down! When she hit the water it would bury way deep and then bounce back and hurl us off in every direction.

    Awesome fun! great memories.
    Cheers

    Yep we did the tractor tube too !!! having a couple of mates spinning the tube before letting it go over made for a hell of a ride. Going flat out with the thing spinning you didn't know which way was up .
    Thanks for the pics Chong...there's some serios water going through there.
    Could make for some tough fishing.
