Rafting or white water rafting is the challenging
recreational outdoor activity of using an inflatable raft
to navigate a river or other bodies of water. This is often
done on white water or different degrees of rough water, in
order to thrill and excite the raft passengers. The development
of this activity as a leisure sport has become popular since
the mid-1970s, evolving from individuals paddling 10 feet
(3.0 m) rafts with double-bladed paddles to multi-person rafts
propelled by single-bladed paddles and steered by a tour guide
at the stern. It is considered an extreme sport.

Otherwise known as the International Scale of
River Difficulty, below are the six grades of difficulty in
white water rafting. They range from simple to very dangerous
and potential death or serious injuries.
Grade 1: Very small rough areas, might require slight
maneuvering. (Skill level: very basic) Grade 2: Some rough water, maybe some rocks, might
require some maneuvering. (Skill level: basic paddling skill) Grade 3: Whitewater, small waves, maybe a small drop,
but no considerable danger. May require significant maneuvering.
(Skill level: experienced paddling skills) Grade 4: Whitewater, medium waves, maybe rocks, maybe
a considerable drop, sharp maneuvers may be needed. (Skill
level: whitewater experience)
Grade 5: Whitewater, large waves, large volume, possibility
of large rocks and hazards, possibility of a large drop, requires
precise maneuvering. (Skill level: advanced whitewater experience) Grade 6: Class 6 rapids are considered to be so dangerous
that they are effectively unnavigable on a reliably safe basis.
Rafters can expect to encounter substantial whitewater, huge
waves, huge rocks and hazards, and/or substantial drops that
will impart severe impacts beyond the structural capacities
and impact ratings of almost all rafting equipment. Traversing
a Class 6 rapid has a dramatically increased likelihood of ending
in serious injury or death compared to lesser classes. (Skill
level: successful completion of a Class 6 rapid without serious
injury or death is widely considered to be a matter of great
luck or extreme skill and is considered by some as a suicidal
