Perhaps it's just that we don't see all the "styling" runs since that's not as entertaining video as the beat-downs.
No, I've seen them run in person a few times - they don't style anything. They beater down whatever river they are on.
This thread took a wrong turn with the new laws/rules comment. Obviously there should not be new rules on the river.
At the same time all boaters should come together and agree that these things are awful - because they are.
Here's a direct link to the North Fork video if you haven't seen it:
That is legitimately terrifying. I agree with the sentiment of Brian Ward's comment on that link. Putting unskilled people in these things above Jacob's Ladder is irresponsible and shows a lack of respect for that river and that rapid in particular. That rapid has a history of being very unforgiving to mistakes. Thankfully this didn't end up much worse.
