Hey David, Sorry about the loss of your friends. I've always wanted to become a good enough paddler to eventually play in tide rips. Flat water has gotten so boorring...Makes me start to think otherwise...

How fast were the currents in the tide rips you experienced?


: kind of exhilerating. But, yeah,I have avoided tide rips religiously,
: having lost 3 friends to kayaking accidents and having read "Deep
: Trouble". This just sharpens my skills. Thanks for the excellent
: advice.
