Jim Baird and his younger brother Ted are extreme canoeists and adventurers who've paddled remote rivers in Quebec, Ontario, Northwest Territories and more. Jim writes about their adventures on his blog www.canoebeyond.com

In this video, Jim (in the stern) and Ted demonstrate a low and high brace after they go over a dam at the end of Wahwashkesh Lake north of Parry Sound, Ontario.

To learn more about bracing, see the Spring 2014 issue of Outdoor Canada.
