Guide School Episode 2: First Strokes


Whitewater Guide School continues as the trainees learn to be the rudder while instructing their crew on how to be the motor. The goal in episode two is to give the guides-to-be the foundational strokes in their toolbox that let them move their boat and fix their angles in the water.

“When someone is new in the back of the guide seat and they’re practicing their guide strokes, it kind of reminds me of a cow that was just born and trying to walk. It doesn’t look super natural.” – Dana Dickinson, OARS Guide
