Instructor Bio

After 18 years of bad judgment Mike Mather is one of the more experienced and entertaining rescue professionals in the industry. Having taught courses all over the U.S. and in Europe, Mike's less than conventional approach to this topic is anything but dry and effectively drives swiftwater rescue concepts home. Mike excels at keeping topics clear, accessible and applicable for rescue professionals, experienced boaters and novices alike. Through a combination of bizarre storytelling and hands on instruction Mike keeps participants thoroughly engaged.

Took a SWR with MM, and got a lot out of it. Highly recommend him. FWIW

Highly recommended.
It takes a big man to cry...It takes an even bigger man to laugh at that man.
