Have any pics of your launch area? Rocks, trees, small area, etc. Anyone ride on a really small water surface?

Super sketchville here. We jump off an old broken concrete and rusted iron launch, into deep choppy water with a slow current. The only exits are four small 20m rock beaches with trees, sign posts, and then a road with hydro lines. There is a nice rusted water pipe, at the preffered exit point. The last chance exit is only about 500m downwind and if you miss that your looking at things like yacht clubs as your best option. We get a little nervous when beginners show up!

I agree. I thought we had some sketchy launches, but I take it back after seeing those pics.

This is the worst of the New Orleans launch areas, but rumor has it the Corps of Engineers is ready to add more rock to our "better" launch.
