doh This dude can't even brace and he's running the Upper Ocoee!
I can't believe this video. This dude is running the Upper Ocoee with a shaftfloat and can't even brace. He's asking to get killed. The video shows him upside down many times on the class 2 section near the beginning then he proceeds through the Olympic course. You can see him not even attempting braces or rolls. When he flips, he just puts his paddle shaft float in the water and manages to get himself back up. He then proceeds to plow into Humongous right into the meat. His line through Roach Motel Rapid is horrifying. I hope this guy learns how to read water and how to brace and roll someday. Otherwise, he's gonna be another statistic!

It's a long video but the good part starts at 12:45 thru 16:00. Then again at 20:45 and on through Roach Motel Rapid.

This is proof that the shaftfloat is not a roll aid at all. If it was, it would be teaching you how to roll. It's just a crutch to lead you to harder rivers without learning to roll or brace. It does nothing in aiding rolls!
