Dirty Drains, Snowy Hills, And Falling From A Plane. Who Needs Water To Go Kayaking?
No water? no problem: 10 insane new ways to go kayaking...
We understand that to go kayaking you normally need good river levels or good surf.
But what do you do in those long dry and/or frozen months? The answer seems simple. Keep kayaking... Make it more extreme!
Do a Speed Test
Kayakers Ben Marr and Rush Sturges hit speeds of 34mph tearing down a concrete drainage ditch in British Colombia.
They became something of an internet sensation racking up and astounding 2.5million YouTube views.
Become a Downhill Dummy
"That it the dumbest thing I've ever seen a dummy do!"
Paddlers seem a rare breed. But if they love kayaking enough that their withdrawal symptoms will lead to them hiking up a massive hill and launching off and taking a massive hit for our entertainment then that's fine by us!
Be a Bungy Badass
The Moses Mabhida Stadium had the eyes of the World on it during the 2010 South African Fifa World Cup.
However Steve Fisher seems to have found a way to combine kayaking and football stadiums into a crazy new sport.
We wonder if it's possible for comedy central to let Justin Bieber try this, and simply leave him hanging mid-air...
Do a Crash Test
Rumour has it that Volvo's crash test dummies have life so easy they get shipped off to perform idiot stunts like this.
Not one to try at home! Hang on a sec... despite all common sense these guys did
Try to be Queen of the Park
Urban and Kayaking aren't words you'd normally see together. These spectacular innovators however have found a new way of dicking around in your local park.
You just need some shitty wheels, a boat you don't mind destroying and a parental figure to push you along like a small child.
However, we really appreciate the Queen.
Start a Sandslide
If you can ski down sand dunes then surely it's possible to kayak down them as well?
Well apparently so, but this neither looks controlled, comfortable or fun. If you bail on this you're getting a face full of grit.
Find a Bridge
Any bridge will do. Though if you are dumb enough to try a stunt like this we would rather hope it was over very shallow water so we can witness natural selection in action.
Find a Snowpark
This looks like awesome fun. I imagine you'd piss off every one else at the park but who cares when you look that good!
Or Just Find Snow
Apparently snow kayaking is a fairly big deal. Or at least it must be if Red Bull are cashing in on it.
This race looks insane. We're not sure if that's literally insane or figuratively...
Either way we're glad this exists, and look forward to the meteoric rise of snow kayaking in all of our favourite resorts. We're joking, we just want to see someone fall out of a kayak at speed and slam themselves all the way down the slope!
Find a Parachute
You've probably seen this mind-boggling video before. Clearly some people don't find jumping out of a place enough of an adrenaline rush.So they create Skyaking.
So next time you see Jason Statham and he's trying to find a quick adrenaline fix tell him to grab a kayak, plane and parachute!
Or Find Snow and a Parachute!
Snow, Sky, Kayaking. errrr... Snow-Skyaking?? What ever its called it looks awesome, and we want in.
Perfect for all of the multi-sport junkies looking to combine all of their hobbies into one quick fix because their other half is complaining that they spend too much time having fun and not doing things together.
