The emotion lovers choose for the river with rapids to overcome all obstacles and stones that are found there. The most peaceful and fans of calmness choose the calm water areas enjoying the fauna and flora of the banks, ending the tour with a refreshing bath in a river. No matter what your goal, enjoy unique moments in waters of Brazil is even more fun during the practice of buoy-cross.
"Besides being in contact with nature, which I like the most in buoy-cross is the autonomy that gives me the activity in controlling the movements of the buoy rapids. It`s very relaxing to enjoy the scenery during the fall," says Daniel Ramirez, executive officer in Sao Paulo.
Coming from the buoy-cross, aqua ride is quite another kind of activity requested in the rapids of the country. The basic difference between these activities is that the aqua ride uses an inflatable boat especially designed for the activity, which normally the person lies on the chest, with the body supported on the boat and the members out. The hands are used to row and avoid obstacles, and the legs to direct the path.
Some hot spots of Brazil to practice de activity are the Rio Jaguari in Monte Verde - MG, rivers and waterfall of Nhudiaquara located respectively in the cities of Antonina and Morretes, in Paraná, São Pedro in Glicerio-RJ, Jacaré-Pepira, Jaguari and do Peixe. Located in Brotas, SP, Pedreira e Socorro, respectively, in Novo`s river, in Jalapão Tocantins, and Rio Formoso, at Bonito,MS.
Both methods can be practiced by children and adults because what varies is the level of difficulty of courses. The only pre-requirements are to swim and have a minimum height pre-determined by the company providing the service.
A brief training is sufficient to start the practice, however, is always good to make sure the company offering the service is formalized and has a business license, and make sure the company provides insurance and applies the technical standards of ABNT in the activity in question. Also note that the company has the System Safety Management implemented in accordance with these standards.
