We came across this video on youtube, which shows a long swim on Clear Creek near Idahos Springs, CO. The video generated a lot of criticism and some feed-back on YouTube, citing inadequate experience and technique, improper equipment and a few other items.
Remember, dress to swim and practice swimming safe rapids each season, including techniques to roll into eddies while swimming. The more you practice the more acclimated you are, you will be able to be more calm, in control and able to make the moves you need to make happen when running bigger water.
Thank you John Hopper for your humility and posting your swim video. We truly appreciate it.
