#4 doesn't have to be put your hands above your head and rips your arms out of socket. Instead of normal setup with paddle at the surface, you can keep the blades in the water and search around for some green water to get some purchase on without totally killing your shoulder. This method finally got me out of a hole on the green truss section of the white salmon. Meaty little unnamed ledge hole that cartwheeled me and was tossing me around. Got several breaths while I was in there, but I was not coming out. Finally found some green water and just held the blades there in a static pull and I flushed out.

Rg5hole, if you watch that video... what Boomer ended up doing to get out of that hole was to endo backwards into it. That pushed him out. I have watched that video a hundred times cause it's a good learning video. He was fighting the whole time but he was in shape to escape that hole too and that would play a big part in your decision to flight or fight. That's and individual thing.

In the video... at about 1:34 you can see how hard he pops up, I would say that the way he was holding the paddle on that that last dunk by the river gods is what popped him up with that much force. But hey I'm a rookie so who knows. Just don't drink the water. LOL.

Ender out or if your strong enough, brace your way out of the side like Eric Jackson does at 0:55!

Haha Russ, I thought this was a new thread which left me wondering what you have been beatering down lately with a broken back and collar bone. Sorry none of this advice has proven effective to help you stay in your boat
