Description

Regardless of skill, running rivers presents an element of danger. As whitewater paddling continues to grow in popularity and more thrill-seekers push the boundaries of the sport, accidents are inevitable. In a tightly focused look at the best, most current techniques for both self-rescue and rescue of others on the river, the authors provide a well-reasoned guidance that will teach you when to stay with the boat and when not to; how to retrieve a lost boat; how to swim out of trouble and when not to swim; how to help others and not become a victim; how to properly perform first aid. 198 pages, illustrated, paperback.
