    I agree with Jurfie.
    Rock gardeners are a different breed...

    I get to paddle with some of the people in that video (Bill and Jillian) sometimes and got to work with Bill Vonnegut at our local symposium. While I'm not a big rock gardener, it is a lot of fun if done with some safety precautions (its a team sport..) and it turned rocks into a resource I can explore, use to find shelter, find safe landing places, etc instead of something to avoid.

    It opened up new bits of our coastline for me to explore and I can highly recommend taking a class on rock garden safety and rescues if you have the opportunity and Bill is an amazing coach!

    PS> Technically he is a "competitor" to the shop I work for, so no, I have no financial interests in promoting him..
