    Don't know if this has been posted before, but here's an example of practicing rescues where it matters! :cool

    It impressed me too! I've seen lots of videos showing how to do rescues, but they've always been in millpond still waters. Everyone says you don't know how good your rescue is until you've tried in conditions where it may be the difference between life and death. :shock:

    It is nice to find a video that shows something a little more challenging!

    Kudos to Nick Schade for posting it in YouTube! :cool
