But before embarking on her Rafting or Rafting, try the following tips to know 7.

The Outdoor Adventure: BelgiKayak Update: Reaching The North Sea

Belgian adventure Louis-Philippe Loncke has completed his BelgiKayak expedition, which sent him on a 600km (373 mile) journey around his home country, exploring its waterways and measuring their health, while filming the experience as a way of documenting what he saw along the way. What he found was incredible beauty that is threatened by man.

I received a note last night from Lou-Phi giving me insights into his expedition which ended when he reached the North Sea this past weekend. Traveling along Belgium's idyllic rivers, he discovered a number of smaller tributaries, often hidden behind foliage, that when entered, allowed him to get close to nature like never before. Anyone who has paddled a calm river has probably experienced something similar. Since kayaks make virtually no noise, it is easy to paddle up on unsuspecting animals, providing some fantastic experiences that are hard to have while traveling on foot.

When he first started this journey back in July, Loncke had very limited time inside a kayak. In fact, he only had an hours worth of training before setting off on in his Seabirddesigns boat. He freely admits that he didn't know how to pull of an eskimo roll and was completely afraid of capsizing in his first few days out on the water. But after hours of paddling, he became more comfortable and experienced, and is now looking forward to more paddling adventures.

Logistically speaking, there were some hurdles to overcome along the way. For instance, he had to navigate a series of 50 locks which help regulate water flow along the river. Those usually involved a portage, although he did pass through some that are on the UNESCO World Heritage List that have been in operation since 1888. He also paddled into Brugge, a city that is sometimes called the "Venice of the North," where kayaking is only permitted one day of the year. Loncke contacted the local officials before his arrival however, and they granted him permission to paddle through their fair city, something that sounds spectacular.

One of the things that I love about this expedition is that it was often conducted on weekends and during what ever spare time Lou-Phi could find. It is an example of how we can all find ways to put a little adventure into our own lives, even close to home, and maybe even discover some wonderful new places that we didn't even know existed. This could easily be a blueprint for other weekend expeditions, and I'm sure we could all find similar opportunities close to where we live. Well done Lou-Phi!

The Outdoor Adventure: Battle of the Paddle California Results

As I've mentioned before, stand-up paddling continues to grow in popularity, with more and more outdoor enthusiasts joining in on the action all the time. The sport has grown to the point that there are now major SUP competitions taking place on a regular basis, with one of the bigger ones, the Battle of the Paddle, taking place in California this past weekend.

The event is a race in which the stand-up paddlers take to the water, catch a bit of surf, and use their paddles to power their way through a simple course which includes making some turns around floating buoys. There were a couple of qualifying heats before the real competition got underway, and in the end it came down to a neck and neck fight between a trio of top competitors, with 17-year old Conner Baxter of Hawaii claiming the victory in the men's division. For the ladies, it was Candice Appleby who crossed the finish line first, putting a considerable distance between herself and her closest competitors.

SUP Connect, a website dedicated to stand-up paddling, has more details on the event, which you can read by clicking here. The video below also gives good insights into the race and the men and women who competed in it.

I have yet to give SUP a try, although I see people doing it on a regular basis here in Austin. Anyone tried it yet? Are you a convert?

The Outdoor Adventure: Might Journey: Another Stand-Up PaddleboarderCompletes The Mississippi

And yet another stand-up paddleboarding story today.

A few weeks back, Dave Cornthwaite completed his SUP journey down the Mississippi River. Turns out he wasn't the only one attempting that feat this summer. On June 8 of this year, Matthew Crofton waded out into the headwaters of the Mississippi and started his own 2400+ mile journey down that waterway, following the same path that Dave had taken. Yesterday, Matthew finished up his expedition, arriving at the Gulf of Mexico at long last.

His story is a bit different from Dave's however. While the Mississippi paddle was the latest leg in Cornthwaite's Expedition 1000 project, for Matt it was a celebration of life and living it to its fullest. Last year, he was stuck down with a rare disease known as Histoplasmosis – a fungal disease, contracted from bat guano and most likely picked up while Crofton was spelunking. When the disease set in, it put Matt in a coma, with the prognosis that he had less than 48 hours to live. His family was told that if by some miracle he did manage to survive, he would need a liver transplant and daily dialysis for his kidneys.

The miracle did happen, and not only did Matthew survive, his liver began to regenerate and his kidneys started to function at full capacity again. He did spend three months in the hospital recovering, and another three months learning to walk again, but as a part of his rehab, he took up stand-up paddling.

Almost a year later, Crofton set out on his journey, hoping to set a new world's record for the longest stand-up paddle. Along the way, he also manage to inspire a few of us as well.

Congrats and well done Matthew!

regardless of age, social status, education level and one's profession.
When this has been a lot that can be forded rivers and professionally managed by
some rafting operators. They offer various packages of activities with
age levels and abilities of candidates kunsumennya. Starting from the river with
level of difficulty is easy up to the challenges and promising river
Here's an explanation of the difficulty level of the river:

Class I
Difficulty level of the lowest river, with currents that vary from flat (flat)
and relatively quiet until a little simmering in some places. Any obstacles
very little and can be seen clearly. The risk of swimming in the river is very low and
self-rescue is easy to do.

Class II
River with a low difficulty level - medium. Suitable for beginners, with the river
wide and swift enough current, so it is not clear trajectory pengarungan
require prior observations.
Every now and then maneuver the boat needs to be done, but the rocks and rapids medium can
easily bypassed by a trained pengarung. Passengers who flew keluarperahu and drift rarely injured.
Relief assistance is still necessary. River with the difficulty level is very suitable
for basic training rafting.

Class III
River with a medium difficulty level, a cascade which starts irregular
and it is quite difficult and can sink the boat. Maneuvers in the current
swift boats as well as controls on the narrow path is often required. Big rapids rapids
"Strainers" may exist but can be easily avoided. Strong eddies
and the rains are often found, especially on big rivers.
Injury when thrown off the boat and drifting is still very rare; self-rescue
usually be easily done but the relief assistance already required
to avoid possible risks. River with the difficulty level of this
very suitable for family tourism activities or as a recreational alternative because it can
followed by children aged 9 years.

Class IV
River with a medium difficulty level - high. This river has excellent flow
heavy but can still be predicted with exact control of the boat. Technique
rafting on the river is highly dependent on the character of the river itself, because
river with the difficulty level is very diverse and have different though
the same difficulty level.
Big rapids rapids, holes and narrow path that can not be avoided requires
quick maneuverability. Stop for a moment on a quiet little stream which may be required
before starting maneuvers or simply observing the flow to rest. Because the
certain rafting rapids, the danger always threatening.
Risk of injury for passengers who drifted quite large and cause water conditions
self-rescue difficult to do so it needs relief help. Relief assistance
require special training to rescue techniques can be performed by true.
River with the difficulty level is very exciting and promising challenge
more, certainly with the support of adequate equipment, sufficient knowledge and skilled guides.

Class V
River with a high difficulty level and only suitable for a cascade pengarung
already mastered the technique rafting and has considerable experience on the river

Class VI
River belonging to the class V river has rapids and many long
with various obstacles that may cause additional risk for a
rowers. "Drops" or decline tiba2, difficult rapids rapids, "hole" and the cliff
steep that can not be avoided until the waterfall (the waterfall) is common in
this river. Often impassable rapids that streak on a fairly long distance,
thus requiring a high physical endurance. Even if there are whirlpools
calm (Eddies), the numbers are very few and quite difficult to achieve. On a scale of
highest level of difficulty of this river with rapids that have a combination of very
diverse, ranging from the curler, hair, hay stakes, headwall, strainers, under cut, wave train
until the pin holes are very dangerous and deadly.
Thrown out of the boat on the river is very dangerous and action
rescue is often difficult even for someone who is adept though.
Proper equipment, extensive experience and training skills in
rescue is very important.

Class VII
River which has the highest difficulty level. Rafting on the river is hardly
rapids may be because they are unpredictable and very dangerous.
The consequences of an error in river rafting is very heavy and
action rescue almost impossible. River with the difficulty level is only
for a special team that has a high expertise-not to be forded indi-
after often times do rafting on the rivers to severity class V.
Classification of river above the level of difficulty is the difficulty level of the river that
established internationally. However, this classification is still very varied and can
changeable although still on the same river, because of the difficulty level is very
depending on water discharge and river slope. So that at certain times
these rivers has a difficulty level that may increase or may decrease. Therefore, by the instigators behind the class rafting rivers often
plus sign + (plus). For example Serayu river has a difficulty level III +
meaning in a particular river rafting rapids Citarik have an equivalent level of difficulty
with a Class IV river.

Raft Guide

Serayu River Rafting Banjarnegara - Central Java
Serayu River Rafting Banjarnegara - Central Java
A typical raft guide is usually in his or her twenties. However, guides range anywhere from 18 to up in their sixties. The majority of raft guides are seasonal employees.
The job of the guide while on the river is to entertain the guest, and navigate the boat. On smaller rapids guides will turn the boat and go through rapids a certain way to ensure that everyone on the boat gets wet. On larger rapids it is the guides responsibility to keep the raft from flipping in unsafe places, and to keep it on the 'company line' during the rapids. An important aspect of a raft guide is the "Raft Talk". This is the talk that a guide will give to their guests. Every raft guides talk is unique. Most new guides will listen to veteran guide's talks and take bits and pieces of each to create their own. A talk could be a series of jokes to keep the crew laughing, a history lesson on the area, or even just a 'get to know you' type talk; the best talks include all three. On difficult rivers the guide will often extensively brief their crew on the rapids, giving swimming instructions, where a throw bagger might be, and hazards to avoid in the rapid when swimming.

Types of guiding
Oar Guiding is where the guide maneuvers the raft with oars from either the stern or middle of the raft. On multi-day trips it is common to have a center oar rig where clients do not paddle, and where gear is stored. Guides oar guiding will use techniques such as 'walking the oars' through flat sections or 'holding a star' when stern rigged through large waves. Oar Guides generally have more control over their raft than paddle guides, but oar rigged rafts are dangerous when flipping and hard to re-right making them less versatile in big water rafting.
Serayu White Water Rafting
Serayu White Water Rafting
Paddle Guiding is the most common type of high adventure guiding where the guide sits in the stern of the boat with a one bladed guide stick (paddle). Using draws, prys, the guide can influence the direction of the boat, along with using different paddling commands for their crew.
Bow Guiding is where two guides are in the boat, one in the stern and one in the bow. This can be done in a stern rigged boat, or a raft where both guides are paddle guiding. It is usually only done over short stretches of whitewater that require a lot of maneuvering for safe passage. Bow guides use techniques such as 'spearing' through large waves, and bow draws to quickly change the direction of the boat. Unlike stern guides the bow guide will never pry with their paddle, instead they will change the orientation of their hands to maintain a power grip in both directions.

Raft guide pay
A raft guide is paid a small amount per trip, usually near minimum wage in developed countries. The rafting industry is a service industry and tipping is strongly encouraged.

Level of expertise and specialization of personnel and management service is a key factor that makes the sport of whitewater rafting are becoming increasingly open to the public can be enjoyed by the layman. Technological development also produces more sophisticated equipment to enhance security and convenience for its users. In fact, today many rivers that used in navigating can not be safe to pass, such as rafting rapids on the Colorado River in Grand Canyon river Jalcomulco United States or in Mexico. Before creating it in rubber boats with a strong range of variants, as now, the rivers are always destroying every boat that passed. However, with increasing quality and technological boats and their equipment, those rivers can now be navigating by commercial travelers hundreds of times each year, even safe for tourists who are not seasoned.
