noun - Rapids swimming is swimming for competition, fitness or pleasure in rapids of a fast-flowing downstream river.


suifu ryu (Japanese), river swimming, open water swimming


Rapids are areas of shallow, fast-flowing water in a stream. Rapids tend to form in younger streams, with water flow that is straighter and faster than in older streams. Softer rocks in the streambed erode, or wear away, faster than harder rocks.
