Posted: The key with any new skill is practice. Play around at your local whitewater centre by boofing some non-consequential holes. Yes, it helps you to look good in photos, but you can still take an absolute kicking when you boof into a bad place! Anyway, get out there and find your boof. It was a few months before I realised that everyone else seemed to stay drier than I did and they never had as much fun with unexpected down-river freestlye. After consulting Dr Google and watching numerous Youtube videos, I was confident that the boof was my answer to stylish kayaking and that I would be paddling with the pros in no time. Sadly, the reality of learning to boof was somewhat harder than my optimistic imagination was suggesting.

Boofing is the act, or art, of keeping the bow of your kayak from diving underwater, and it is without a doubt the most important skill to learn for paddling creeks. Most notably, you can boof waterfalls and steep drops, but you can also boof holes, pourovers, reactionaries, and even eddy lines. You should acknowledge from the outset that although boofing is a crucial technique for running drops, it can also be quite dangerous if not done properly. Landing flat from a drop of any significant height is going to shock your spine. This shock has broken the backs of paddlers on surprisingly small drops. Only experience can tell you when or when not to boof a drop.
That being said, when you marry a doctor, you marry the profession too. He should tell her that he will never convert, and that if she will not be happy unless he does, the relationship should end.

Good luck to both of you on working this out, and if you decide that interfaith marriage is something you can handle and your gentlemen turn out to be the right men for you, then welcome to the club. Like many of you ladies I also feel like I'm getting the scraps of his time. You can and should share with her why you don't and never will believe in the Mormon church, and let her decide for herself, but be prepared to have that blow up in your face. I married a person, not a religion. Ultimately, it comes down to this.
