You need to check out this absolutely gorgeous sea kayaking short film that was put together from the gang at Kaspi Arial Media. The film follows Christine Utas, one of the instructors from the White Squall Paddling Centre as she paddles through the fog at Killbear Provincial Park. I don’t think I have ever seen Georgian Bay looking so good.

Do Whitewater Paddlers Have Nine Lives? These Guys Do. Saturday, 10 December 2011
I could hardly finish watching this video of whitewater kayakers paddling a flood swollen river and I lost count after the 4th near drowning. The really scary thing is that the whole video seems to be shot on the same day with the same 4-5 guys. Looks like they would do well to invest in some swift water rescue training to save them from being nominated for future a Darwin Award. If you are at work, stop at the 5:30 mark as it gets NSFW at the end.
