    En lugar de llevar un kayak, me parece más útil llevar una paracaídas!

    Am I the only one that thinks this is completely insane?

  4. Roen on January 13, 2020 at 11:28 am

    Those paddles look pricey must be a bitch finding them when you toss them away from you.

    Why do you let go of your paddle when you fall off the big falls?

  19. Steven Manders on January 13, 2020 at 11:45 am

    I have been white water kayaking for 50 years now. That is a half century.   Back in 1967 you had to borrow a club mold and make your own fibreglass kayak.  It was a weekend job, costing about $75 requiring 3 people.    I paddle mostly in southern Ontario, but did the Middle Fork of the Salmon River  and  Selway Rivers in Idaho, and Gallatin River in Montana.   We saw one other large group on the Salmon river that week, no others on the Gallatin.    I still have that boat but I paddle a much newer one now, only 35 years old.   There were a dozen of us from  Ontario, we met another dozen from all over the USA.  No one had a commercial boat!   Walter Blakadar was our trip leader.  Look him up on the internet.    In the book about him "Never Turn Back" he mentions that we had a large salmon for dinner at Dagger Falls.  It fed 20 hungry people.   I was one of the people that enjoyed it, but I only found out how he really got it when I read the book.    German immigrants introduced the sport of white water kayaking in fibreglass boats,  one third of any such group then were doctors,  the rest were an interesting bunch of people.

    That first video had my mouth hanging open in astonishment. I agree with the other posters that the order should be reversed.

  21. K R on January 13, 2020 at 11:46 am

    had to bypass that loud song with the dubstep stuff

  22. Berton Nababan on January 13, 2020 at 11:48 am

    Gud

  23. MrSahansdal on January 13, 2020 at 11:48 am

  24. Ronald Kiessig on January 13, 2020 at 11:49 am

    The 1st song is viices made of hights

  28. Great Cornhollio on January 13, 2020 at 11:53 am

    Don’t understand the discussion here. First two films are more like actionmovies, absolutely impressive for sure, but the french film clearly deserves 1st place on a cinematic and overall "making you longing for kayaking"-approach. The end is also the funniest. It’s not all about making the craziest stunts. Think about it.

  29. Elisha Geist on January 13, 2020 at 11:55 am

    How do they get there padles back

  30. Roen on January 13, 2020 at 11:56 am

    do not try this at home…. if you see a waterfall, quickly row against the stream xD

  31. Symphony Farm on January 13, 2020 at 11:56 am

    yep….the envelope is looking a lot different from 98.

  32. Ray Laracuente on January 13, 2020 at 12:02 pm

    That’s gotta be such an fing rush!!!

  33. jeetu grover on January 13, 2020 at 12:03 pm

    Ultimate session

  34. Zathara on January 13, 2020 at 12:03 pm

    SO bad ass

  35. Sam Mccall on January 13, 2020 at 12:05 pm

    havent seen rapids that bad since my tip down the pea river

  36. Anish limbu on January 13, 2020 at 12:05 pm

    Wow

  37. Michael G on January 13, 2020 at 12:10 pm

    Just wow said this old man.

  38. jayson holechek on January 13, 2020 at 12:12 pm

    Can someone tell me what the first song is?

  39. MrSahansdal on January 13, 2020 at 12:12 pm

    Some things I will never do. Like this, for example.

  40. Владимир Бобрик on January 13, 2020 at 12:12 pm

    Ух ты!

  41. Ado Centyn on January 13, 2020 at 12:14 pm

    cool

  42. M S on January 13, 2020 at 12:14 pm

    Hilarious! The 3rd place video is by far the best. The 1st place winner, the weakest, just happens to be French…home of the magazine. The only reason I looked it up is because it’s so blatantly obvious the French film doesn’t deserve first I assumed some bias, prejudice or other reason for it being given 1st place because it sure as shit doesn’t deserve it. Magazine should be ashamed of itself.

  43. Rorschach on January 13, 2020 at 12:14 pm

    name of the first Track

  44. Mark Poletti on January 13, 2020 at 12:15 pm

    What is the name of the song of the third film (the winner), that begins at 11:22)? Thanks

  45. Caver461 on January 13, 2020 at 12:16 pm

    I prefer the 2nd place film – more artfully presented

  46. Ralf Woerter on January 13, 2020 at 12:16 pm

    einfach nur geil, bin leider etwas zu alt um diesen Blödsinn wieder zu machen 🙂

  47. Scott W. on January 13, 2020 at 12:17 pm

    Not sure who judged these videos, but it certainly wasn’t judged based upon kayak skill level, video production, music/ video editing, scenery and all around best video.

    The winner was the donkey carrying kayaks to a muddy washout… really?👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼

  48. Leonard Bessac on January 13, 2020 at 12:19 pm

    Is it really usefull to know how to kayak at this level?! haha

  49. Eliandro on January 13, 2020 at 12:21 pm

    My God!!!

  50. John Flinn on January 13, 2020 at 12:22 pm

    Good idea to have both chest and chin protection on rapids like this. Smart kayakers.
