Note that rivers can have different Grades depending on where you are on that river. Also, note that the Grades may change due to lack of excess precipitation.
Grade 1. It's the 'easiest' river you can paddle and great for practising on moving water if you've never paddled on it before. This means the water is moving, without rocks or other hazards to avoid, and without technical difficulties. It means paddling should be within most people's abilities.
Grade 2. Rivers are the next step up from Grade 1. They can include waves and small stoppers, which should be easy to navigate. They can also have eddies where you can catch your breath before moving on to the next set of rapids.
Grade 3. Getting a little more technical, grade 3 rivers are more technically challenging. They also include distinctive waves and stoppers and sometimes even drops. How would you tell the difference between grades 2 and 3? Grade 3 rivers usually require you to paddle a specific route to avoid obstacles, such as rocks along the river.
Grade 4. Getting into the trickier end of the scale, Grade 4 rivers include severe waves, drops, stoppers and other possible objects that can affect the flow of the water. If you paddle Grade 4, you will be used to reading the river and inspecting a route from the bank before running that river. Because of the breadth of what Grade 4 encompasses, sometimes rapids within the river will be classified as Grade 4- or Grade 4+, indicating their intensity level.
Grade 5. These rivers are challenging and require exceptional skill and experience to navigate. They are very demanding and include stoppers, currents and powerful waves.
Grade 6. Extreme on another level. Please, grade six rapids will look un-runnable, but they can sometimes be possible under the right circumstances and with the right amount of skill and experience. Please think of the most extreme rapids you've seen and make them even more ferocious.
