This video highlights a one minute side surf beatdown that culminated in a swim while paddling at Dickerson Whitewater Course in Maryland. Dickerson is a slalom kayak training/competition facility located at the Dickerson power plant in Dickerson, Maryland. I am a 3rd year paddler and have found myself in a recent stretch of out of boat experiences. I would later learn a technique used to get out of a sticky situation such as the one highlighted in this video. Lesson learned!!!
