man.. .this is unreal… i used to work for the City of Niagara Falls… and every day on the way to work i went by those rapids…. I looked at them soo many times… I even got areal photography of whole river (some of the work perks.. ” title=”Smile” /> ) and was looking at that too…
I am sooooooo jealous… too bad there are legal issues with accessing such a great run… ” title=”Sad” />
Definetly for real. Been done in a Descender(open boat) by Nolan Whitesell many years ago. So for top guns like these guys, no problem beleiving this ” title=”Cool” />
Went to Niagara falls last year, walked the boardwalk along this incredible run. This is not class VI but very big class V and with the right people and legal access I would consider running this in an open boat.
I think it’s complete BS that this is an illegal run !!!
And we need pioneers like these guys to show the world it can be ran safely (by a crew of experts / pros).
Oh my god and I hope they didn’t leave any plastic scrapings on the rocks either.[/quote:fpcc358g]
Too much water for this…Now with the 50km/hr speed, if they hit a fish…might have some colored fish skin I wonder if the plastic on fish skin is bad, might protect them from UV rays when they surface…enough stupidity back to work !
