Logrolling

We've had some requests from friends and family to post videos from Evie's logrolling classes.

Here is a clip of a bucking match—a match where the competitors face in opposite directions:

Here is a running match, where both competitors face the same direction:

A typical match is 3 out of 5,and to win you just have to hit the water second. Some of the matches are very close, with the contestants falling in nearly at the same time. The winner is said to "take the fall", so it makes the terminology a little confusing. We all agree that our first instinct is to think that the person who takes the fall is the one who falls into the water first.
