This is where I was over the weekend...first time I've been watersliding over rapids. With your life jacket on, you slowly make your way over the rocks at the top of the rapids to about the middle where the sloped rock has a flat surface to shoot you . Sit your butt down and you are taken down into the rushing rapid. Keep your hands up by your chest or they may get caught in the rocks, hold your breath and after you're out of the rapids and the current, you get out and do it all over again. It was fun, but you gotta know when to quit. It's only relatively safe...the guys in our group had a small list of injuries.
