    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.. <img loading=” title=”Smile” /> ) and was looking at that too…

    I am sooooooo jealous… too bad there are legal issues with accessing such a great run… <img loading=” title=”Sad” />

    Check out "First Legal Decent of the Niagara Gorge" on Youtube…….classic ’80s journalism……..sorry, don’t know how to set up the direct link……but do go check it out.

    Ok … I have a question about this supposed run down the Niagra Gorge by some of the JK crew.

    Is this for real or just BS <img loading=:” title=”Question” />

    How could a company that puts family values first opening admit in a public forum (their website) to performing a illegal act <img loading=:” title=”Question” />

    Are they now condoning illegal park and huck and other stuff to the younger generation <img loading=:” title=”Question” />

    Just curious.

    Hi Colin,

    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 <img loading=” 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 !!! :evil:

    And we need pioneers like these guys to show the world it can be ran safely (by a crew of experts / pros).

    Good show guys and keep upping the ante !

    :lol: Too much water for this…Now with the 50km/hr speed, if they hit a fish…might have some colored fish skin :roll: I wonder if the plastic on fish skin is bad, might protect them from UV rays when they surface…enough stupidity :lol: back to work !

    Sarcasm Colin.

    The list of names who’ve run this is quite long.

    Chris Spelius, Nolan Whitesell, Chris Koll, Bruce Reiger and several others who’s names escape me.
