It's usually by flipping. Unless it's really low water, then paddle in and paddle out. Though not really that hard of a section, I still feel like W.W. deserves some respect, and often just gets overly sand bagged by the cocky.
Maybe It's just the story my SRT instructor used to tell every class, about the eight year old boy with the rope wrapped around his leg in the room, with the water level rising, other end of the parties rope was caught under water.
My instructor happened upon the scene, and tried to free the kid, to point of the rescuers exaustion. Then the water rose a little more. I'll spare everyone the rest of that crappy story
Have fun, but please be safe everyone!
