Before you paddle an unfamiliar run you should learn about the tides, currents, exit points, weather, dangers, and local safety responders. A website like this is typically not the best source for up-to-date information that is specifically local. So before you go out, check in with locals who know whereof they speak. If we get specific risk information we will include that in downwind run descriptions (where there are downwindable.com and/or downwind.fun links we hope you will find local safety issues described there). Many if not most downwind runs mentioned here have simply been found via videos which do not necessarily provide any relevant safety warnings.

Gibbs: “Look alive and keep a weather eye, men! It's not for naught it's called Shipwreck Island where lies Shipwreck Cove in the town of Shipwreck.”
