GENERAL RULES AND ADVICE FOR STAND UP PADDLERS
Tiber Descent is open to all paddlers with experience and equipment suited to river white water up to class 1/2/3, according to the different daily stages. For all daily stages indicated as WW 1-2:
We recommend inflatable or PE boards; epoxy boards are not suited,
We recommend mutiple short and flexible fins, as the collision with rocks is frequent.
We recommend that boards be fitted with front and rear handles.
Obligatory Equipment: All stand up paddlers must wear:
  • a helmet suitable for paddle sports
  • a PFD (life jacket) suitable for paddle sports
  • sturdy neoprene river sport shoes
  • overall neoprene suit
  • coil leash
The descent of the river is carried out in a group and will be led by experienced paddlers: kayakers appointed by the organization as "head" should never be overtaken, nor trail behind the "tail". Participants must follow directions and the timetable set by the organization and the guides at the morning and evening meetings or during the descent.
WARNING: the descent of the river is at your sole responsibility; the organization cannot provide a prompt service and safety in the water as unable to follow a large number of participants on a path so long; the participant are invited to follow the directions given by this regulation and those given during the event.
Rules of good conduct
  • Communicate to the nearest experts the onset of problems, be they physical or related to equipment
  • Respect the advice of the more experienced and decisions of the guides
  • Never overtake the  trailblazer
  • Where required to follow the trajectory, pass in single file at a safe distance of at least 20 metres; if the orders or signals of the guides are not clear or understood, do not make the move
  • Do not intervene in the recovery from the water of a paddler if you are not able to do
  • In case of a transhipment, wait your turn, do not crowd and do not take independent initiatives
  • When ashore along the banks, put the paddle on the board

Tips to the paddle participants
Be aware that, from when you go into the water in the morning to when you disembark in the afternoon, you can rely only on what you have brought with you. So here we have...
Tips for beginners on clothing and supplies to carry aboard:.


  • It seems self-evident, but it is important to remember that it can be sunny or cloudy, it can get hot or cold, can be windy or rainy: the conditions can vary several times during the day. We may have to wait soaked and out of the water for hours in case of emergency. It is good to carry a spare dry wool or fleece (NOT cotton!) change of clothes: Socks, the “wooly undershirt of grandpa", cap. But it is also to bring your sunscreen!
  • Keep in mind that wet cotton absorbs bodyheat and is harmful in the event of adverse weather conditions; wool or fleece on the other hand, even when soaked, retain part of your body heat.
  • Sturdy shoes protect the foot and ankle both on the ground, during embarkation and disembarkation, and in the water in case of capsizing.
  • Remember that you are doing physical activity, and so it is good to bring water to drink!
  • Warm up before each departure, avoid getting wet right away if not properly equipped.
