'The first time Donny lured me into the Severn, the light was fading, the water was cold, the air was silent. I heard the roar long before I saw the wave, my body was shaking all over and my heart was pounding. The fresh water was pulling my feet from under me, as I struggled to hold myself up. Then I saw her...Three foot of solid, foaming, spewing whitewater, hurtling towards me, and I had nowhere to run now! It was all over in an instant. But it wasn't long before I returned....1490 minutes later to be precise!'
