Kayaker Drops over a 75 Foot Waterfall. Buddy Dives in Beside HimMonday, 16 December 2013
For those who woke up this morning with a dream to watch a kayaker going over a 75 foot waterfall while somebody does a backflip dive into the water right beside him, this should make your day complete.
From the YouTube description:
TWO extreme sports professionals take a leap of faith as they plunge headfirst down a 75ft waterfall. White water kayaker Ben Marr and skier Rory Bushfield executed the death-defying stunt at the Mamquam Falls in Squamish, Canada. Bushfield performed a "gainer" - a backwards somersault while still moving forward - from the top of the falls while Marr descended it in his kayak. However, the stunt was not without its dangers - only a few days before their descent a young Vancouver man drowned after leaping into the waterfall.
