2010 is obviously going to be a huge River Blading summer. You're exactly right Class 3 is fun again. I would'nt be surprised if shops sell more blades than boats because there are so few out there floating around used. What's up with no Life Jacket or Helmet though? Is that becoming the standard for blading? I had never thought to go kayaking or SUP'ing without a helmet, even on Class 1. Is the no helmet or life jacket normal for SUP'ing?
Yes, you should always have a PFD on, and helmet too on the river. This shot came at a lunch break where we just were out in front of the rafts, joking around, then it turned into a surf session...........on accident
