  • Carefully crafted information to reflect the latest in paddling technology
  • How-to descriptions that make even difficult whitewater techniques understandable

William Nealy is back and more useful and entertaining than ever. You may break a rib laughing, but with him holding your hand, you’ll be less likely to break a bone while boofing an insane rapid or even an entire waterfall!
