While I am not a fan of waterfall videos..

I think they do a disservice to amazing whitewater paddlers, they also teach the non-paddling public that 'this is what whitewater paddling is' which is very wrong. I very much like this video. Called 'Huck' which is an expression meaning essentially 'jumping off something' it shows the thought that goes into doing things like 70 foot waterfalls on an almost daily basis. Beautifully shot. Enjoy.

  2. totally scary, which is why it isn't representative of whitewater kayaking. But beautifully shot, no?

  3. I agree - while these people are pushing one aspect of whitewater kayaking, many miss the other elements. I feel much more connection to the spirit of the Seasons series of videos - especially Seasons: Fall.
