Has anyone come accross paddlers that have been through the Outward Bound course?? Have been for a paddle with someone who has, they were told that they paddled a grade 3 river during the course, but once paddling they were no way up to the task.

Wondering what river and section that they use and the grade thereof. It just concerns me that these people may be being told that they have been paddling on a G3 river where infact this may not be correct. Seems to me a dangerous thing to make people think that they better then they are. Confidence is good but not when it is ill informed untrained confidence.

Might be some Anikiwa instrutors out there with a comment even.
