I have a Llama and a Yukon and from my memory each of their serial numbers started with letters that looked to indicate this I did manage to surf a standing wave for the first time ever yesterday on the cottonwood river near new..

I packed my trusty Yak and paddle and MAN-o-MAN did I have fun in that thing. Those east coast waves were perfect!! I must have spent at least 20 or more hours over a three day period just playing in the surf.
I just kept running with it, it would flip me forward over the bow, so instead I found that throwing my shoulders and head back into the wave so that my upper torso was under a lot of water prevented me from rotating forward.
It is also much easier to retrieve and tow boats or perform a wet re-entry with nothing or very little weight on the bow. That said, on longer trips, I do strap my pack on the bow. I just try to keep the base weight of my gear as light as possible.
I've never heard of anyone having a dog-nail puncture problem, and there's a dog-in-boat pic or two in the galleries. I've also had Lucy in a yak with me and I'm about 6'1 but that was a bit cozy, and I'm not sure how lucy felt about it.
