The Riddler, the newest member of Team Fat Paddler, is somewhat new to paddling. Like me however he shares a background in rugby and a somewhat pragmatic view to getting bashed up. As a result, he’s been keen to experience some rock gardening and getting thrown from his boat, and has been pressing me to take him out amongst it. Last weekend I finally took him out to our playground, a fairly easy area to learn about moving water and progressively got him in some frothy stuff, ending in the inevitable wet exit and rescue at Gelo Cliffs. All done however in controlled conditions where I knew he wouldn’t find himself in too much trouble.
Here’s the video of the morning’s fun – if you have the broadband capability, watch it full screen in HD to get a feel of being there. Cheers – FP
