Guide School: Episode 3 | Crash, Burn & Learn

6 Min. Watch

Watch the third episode of our 5-part “Guide School” series, produced in partnership with NRS. Our group of aspiring river guides tackle various swiftwater rescue training scenarios before they head downstream to try their luck at Troublemaker Rapid on the South Fork of the American River. As they crash and burn in this notorious rapid, they find out that every flip and swim is a learning opportunity—both about the river and themselves.
