White Water Rafting

sports

If you love extreme adventures and adrenaline rush, then white water rafting is for you. White water rafting is a challenging recreational outdoor activity where you use inflatable rafts to navigate a river or other bodies of water. This is usually done on white waters or different degrees of rough waters, in order to generate thrill and excitement for the rafters. The development of this activity as a leisure sport has become popular since the mid-1970s. It is considered an extreme sport, as it can be dangerous.

Rafts in white water are very different vehicles than canoes or kayaks and have their own specific techniques to maneuver through whitewater obstacles. White water rafting can be a dangerous sport, especially if basic safety precautions are not observed. White water rafting is often played for the adrenaline rush and this can become a problem for participants’ safety.
