In June of 2003 I had an accident on Crested Butte, Colorado's, Daisy Creek's "Rip your head off" rapid.... I broke my C5 and badly fractured my C6 Vertebrae.... End result was 8 weeks in a neck brace and a solid fucking respect for the ability to brace ;)

My advice from all of this... Learn to roll yes, but learn to brace so you do not roll in the first place. This was my 5th year kayaking and at this point my roll was bombproof but my brace was very weak.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
