Playboating is a discipline of whitewater kayaking or canoeing where the paddler performs various technical moves in one place. This is the Thames weir at Hambleden, where the footbridge gets close to the action.

A very nice action shot John. I love the water in this.
John Prior: Thanks Frances, lots of texture in the fast constrained flow from the sluice gates.
Awesome shot, John! I did this once - kept flipping over, I thought I was going to drown!
John Prior: Very brave Elizabeth, not sure I'm that courageous smile

Excellent picture of what I'm sure is a very skilled discipline John
John Prior: Thanks, he seemed to spend as much time under as on top Chris.

John Prior: Thanks Ayush, lots of texture in the fast constrained flow from the sluice gates.

Great determination, the water looks fantastic smile
John Prior: Thanks Linda, difficult to stay on top I think smile
As an almost non-swimmer not my kind of pastime but it does lend itself to very good pictures like this one John.
John Prior: Thanks Brian, never been a strong swimmer either, I treat water with great respect smile
A great sport to watch ... and a fine image John.
John Prior: Thanks Richard, I'd always be wondering what hazards were out of sight beneath the water, perhaps imagination is a draw back smile
Great action shot, nicely composed! Well done!
Have a nice day.
