This December the Whitewater Rescue Institute had the opportunity to speak with filmmaker and river legend, Kent Ford. Kent talked about the making of his video “Whitewater Self Defense,” and gave us some tips on how to stay safe on the river. You can purchase Kent’s video at the WRI store at www.whitewaterrescue.com or visit Performance Video at www.performancevideo.com.

Enjoy the interview below.

“Whether you are a river-rookie or an experienced boater, WRI tailors their classes to what you need to learn in a fun and challenging environment. Their scenario based teaching approach creates an electric learning atmosphere where you feel like you are in actual river rescue situations. I would recommend them to anybody!”
