    Beautiful locale and great fun (and relatively safe) way to learn to surf and move in swiftwater. I liked the music.

    Love this video. FUN! Great camera shots. Don’t need any music though.

    Maybe turn down the adventure music in the mix because it hides the sound of the rapids, which is plenty awe-inspiring all by itself. Just being near, and hearing without seeing tidal rapids inspires trepidation, especially if you are rounding a point and can’t figure out where exactly the roar is coming from.
