Summary
Running rapids will always be a calculated risk. But risk diminishes with skill and knowledge. In Doubles Whitewater, a film by famed canoeist Bill Mason, two canoeists paddling double demonstrate how to read the rapids, plan a course, and follow it in complete control of the boat, using the basic paddling strokes. The strokes can be used in endless combination to reduce the risk of whitewater canoeing and increase the sheer joy and exuberance of a whitewater run.
