Mountainbuzz.com launches “Betty Buzz”

In an effort to make the Buzz a place where the ladies feel welcome, we have teamed up with Anna Levesque and a few gals from the whitewater community to bring you the first whitewater forum just for women. With so many whitewater women out there, we felt the need to create a space to fill the niche. If you are a guy, you are welcome to participate, but please read the guidelines before posting...

Welcome ladies! We are looking forward to meeting you all here soon!

Holley, Anna, Claire, and Tina

Didn't you get the memo? Free surgery at forum's front door .

No really, I think this forum will be a great place for the ladies to feel a little more comfortable posting, asking questions, etc. We're not trying to keep the guys out, we're just trying to make it so that the female paddlers of the Buzz know they can post their honest questions and opinions without being ridiculed and harassed (I know, I know, this never happens on the Buzz) by the guys. Hopefully this will turn many of the lurkers out there into more frequent posters.

ha ha...but...

of all the students I had this past spring and summer in and around Durango....well guys, the ladies learn faster when it comes to rolling and basic paddle strokes.

I kept stats on it... males avg. time to nail their first roll: 47 minutes, females came in at 23 minutes, including a pair of 16 yr old teens who learned to roll in 15 minutes and 21 minutes respectively. I think it's because women are better dancers, they have this natural loose hip thing going on.
