This extreme kayaking compilation video edited by Brian McPherson captures the rush of the sport, its inherent dangers and the consequences of what happens when participants make an error.
As expected, the footage is insane, especially watching as countless people try to overcome deadly chutes.
Watching as these courageous kayakers get their adrenaline fixes by dropping into difficult and violent rapids and waterfalls is heart-stopping. Many of them get swept underwater after facing steep drops, while others lose control and are pulled into terrible, life-threatening situations.
In McPherson’s own words:
I don’t think this video encourages risky behavior, rather just the opposite. It reminds people of the risks involved when boating difficult water.
After watching this terrifying video, we’ll probably never set foot in a kayak unless it’s docked in shallow, motionless water.
