Now well reeded up Dogs Leg is a right hand bend on the outskirts of Durban that poses few problems. As with any sharp corner it is best approached from the centre/right on the inside of the river flow.

Immediately after the turn there is a rocky drop on river left that will be easily skirted by taking the inside (right) hand line down the main rapid.

Don’t get pushed into the outside bend of the leg.
