Best kayaking advice.

Okay, Gore is still going, but there's nothing else, which offers up the perfect opportunity to do some internet boating.....

What's the best kayaking advice - in a single sentence and no more...

Here are a couple I like to adhere to....

1) When you think you're in the eddy, take 2 more strokes
2) Don't follow Brian Bank

1)First time making a really scary ferry of death, my partner yells as he leaves the eddy in front of me, "Don't fuck it up!"
2)"Why would you be upside down, you have a paddle in your hands don't you?" In response to someone saying how they really wouldn't want to be upside down at a certain part of a rapid.

Look ahead to where you want to go, not to where you don't.

Uh, no it doesn't. Have you already forgot last season? Rio was completely iced over above BV until March..... and I wouldn't recommend dropping into the Gorge in the middle of winter without a visual.

Starting to see ice on the river now. From what I saw Sunday the Numbers will likely be locking up in the next couple weeks.

On that note, Shoshone does stay open year round....

single sentence advice:

Work to meet your own goals, not the goals of others.

Ahh, details... Should have said, "Some years". Mostly wanted to counter the false info that Gore is the only thing going now. Carry on.

In the flow committed to a big water style rapid a member of the group yells paddle hard retard. I still say this to myself on some big ones.

Everything that you SHOULD do in kayaking is the exact opposite of what your natural reaction to the situation is.

Keep your upstream edge up.

Dont let go of your paddle to keep your balance. Youre just waving at the crowd.
(OK, it's 2 sentences but the second one is the funny part)
