For all the recent level 2 paddlers who joined up after the course there is a very good example of how important sculling for support is in a more extreme situation at around the 50 second mark of this video.

It's one of the strokes alan has been teaching a bit of by the club on thursday nights.
if anyone else knows of any videos showing the strokes/rescues in use in whitewater/real situations as well post them up. I think its good for people learning to see why its learnt. Obviously the video i posted is an example of it in an extreme environment but i feel it shows a different side to just a stroke in the flat on the Lee.

Also feel free to not skip ahead and watch the ridiculously awesome freewheel off Gorilla on the Green River Narrows.
