Do you see him?!?!?! Crazy!
Set a New Kayak Waterfall Record
Washington, United States
Attempting a new waterfall record in a kayak requires a lot of scouting, an acceptance that you’ll probably get at least a little hurt, and, perhaps most important, an unquestionable belief in one’s own immortality. And yet, in recent years, waterfalls have proven an irresistible, if dangerous, frontier for young-gun pro kayakers seeking eternal bragging rights. “The motivating factor for all of this was just that I thought it was possible,” says Tyler Bradt, who clinched the record in 2009 with a 3.7-second freefall over 186-foot (57-meter) Palouse Falls in eastern Washington (pictured). “I wanted to do it, I guess, because I can.”
