When rowing water like this it is easier than having them ripped out of your hands. And when the slot is as narrow as your boat it is the only way to fit.

That has to be some of the sicker cat boating I've seen.

Sounds like we got a future record breaking waterfall contender here. You just line your kayak up and chuck your paddle at the lip. No way have you run one class 5 creek with this post. I'm sure of it.

The river is gnarly and the boaters might be good who knows? The editor has a clear cut case of ADD and can only show 1 second clips. Made me dizzy. Would like to see a cat do at least 30 seconds straight before cutting to some other cat

As long as you are having fun who cares. I didn't like the editing but who cares. Have fun dude

Then buy the movie. It's a 30 min vid. Had to comment since I was in it and boat with these guys. There's a lot more skill involved then just lining up and letting go of the oars.

hahaa....not in a catarfaft I haven't no. Did you even watch that video? Half the drops they just let go of the oars at the top. Even Curtis said it was for a reason (that I figured was the case). I've run plenty of mid to lower class V rapids in a kayak in my young and dumb days. Obviously its different in Cataraft. The size and configuration dictates a certain lack of finesse compared to the more compact kayak.

Thanks for trolling though.

Having a wing span like a condor helps you keep those oars in your hands...or getting a reasonable width cat. My cat is the same width tube to tube as a shredder, I never drop my oars running slots, even when I end up in the river, my oars are still in my hands. Dropping your oars is like letting go of the wheel, but it's necessary when you run wide cats on tech rivers.
