Whelp, I was commercial rubber guide for 10 years so yes, I'm aware that rafting outfitters run class V. I'm kind of surprised that I'm the only riverboarder to post on this. It's nice to see that people are aware of the sport. The videos posted in this thread are people well known in the dick-dragging community. However, folks like Josh Galt are the reason the sport is known in the US.
I've been kicking down the river for many years and miles with the occasional class V excursion. I've worked for outfitters, "safety boarded" for them, but I have never seen or heard of any outfitter running custys down serious (IV-V) water on sledges.
Pretty sure the point of the this thread was that "some company" was running customers on boards down a "V". If so, yes, that would make for an interesting discussion about the "V" classification. Frankly, the person who started the thread does not know what they're talking about. Maybe he saw someone like myself going down a stretch with commercial boats.
