River Rafting

Know the proper swimming techniques

When swimming in the river, whether you fall out or you jump in for fun, there are two techniques. The first is the Down River Swimmers Position. This is on your back, nose and toes to the sky with your head up so you can see where you are going. Feet down stream with your knees slightly bent. This way if you come in contact with a rock you can use your feet and legs as shock absorbers and push off the rock. Arms should be out to your side to help keep yourself in control. A helpful hint here: keep your butt up. If you sit with your butt low in the water, you will find a rock and bring home some interesting bruises. Guys, keep your legs together. If you hit a rock we call this romancing the stone. There is no romance for a couple of weeks afterwards. The second swimmers position is becoming more popular and more excepted in rescue situations. This position is on your stomach doing your best Michael Phelps impersonation. Point to where you want to go and go. Swim until you are out of the river. Again your guide will explain when it is best to use which swimming position.If you choose to swim to the shore, swim all the way to the shore. NEVER stand up in moving current. Most guides never walk in water over their shins. This prevents a situation called Foot Entrapment which is where you put your size 9 foot in a size 8 hole or crack in the bottom of the river. This is not a good place to be but it is so easy not to get in this situation, just dont walk in the river. It is just that easy.
