If you are going over a fall, should you extend your legs to potentially bounce off the bottom?

That is the same kid that was the star of the infamous Beaver River Beatdown video a few years back.

I would say not, you could tweak your leg when hitting the bottom or get caught in a foot entrapment. Best to stay in a dense, low surface area postion (ball) so the water spits you out.

Yeah, or you could tweak your legs at the crux of the drop, hitting a submerged rock. I did that two weeks ago, both MCL's are sprained. Ball, ball, ball, ball in big shit. The catboater who nabbed me later told me of boating in Cali, and various other places with lots of undercuts in Class V. He reiterated this, that in technical water-Class V, when going through some shit (no chance of "swimming", as in to shore), stay in a ball. He helped me visualize arms and legs getting pinned, a much worse injury than I sustained.

Ouch-that was a big drop he went over! Lucky he wasn't under long...
