Actually, John lost an oar above where this video was taken (in the V-Wave) so he pivoted around and took it backwards (instead of sideways) to avoid a flip. He did very well. His wife Erin started moving around the raft (and scrambling on the back where the pink kayak was strapped) trying to give it more weight, but she slipped off the raft and went for a little swim. Her biggest concern was that she would lose her wig she had on for Halloween! Bart (in the green kayak) was on her right away to get her out successfully.

They pulled it off and did GREAT!
