The thing I least appreciate about the video is what others have said as well. It is a glorified commercial for the family. They are show boating, literally for shock value. They went no where near the big water in the first clip, and they ran a low water 4-4+ rapid.
The kids do fine, and seem to be getting comfortable with the water. The oldest son paddles well, the rest ride along.
As others said, it is in the potential of what they run in the future, and for what reasons. If they continue to show boat, it will only be a matter of time. The youngest would seem too young to be responsible for their outcome in a bad situation.
I do like the father for getting his family on the water, I do not think show boating on line for hits is a great way to teach young people how to appreciate what the water has to offer.
I would bet pennys to pesos he is divorced or going through one, along with being under paid and over worked. Stressed to the max and wanting to spend time with his kids. His wife hates the river, thinks it's dumb.
I will agree, most people who do not appreciate a river have a hard time understanding.
I feel like if he can post that video, I can say what I assume.
