First impression - commentary is hard not to laugh at..
Second impression - Red Bull would never endorse a kayaker that was such a huge asshole.
Third impression - This guy either needs some better instruction, or find a more mellow sport.
Synopsis: It seems that the swim was actually caused by Team Red Bull trying to get him to "turn around" while just a few feet above what was probably a pretty intimidating drop to the victim. It's like Team Red Bull actually wanted the guy to fail so he could roast him the rest of the way down the river. To the guy in the Karma - I'd like to show you a positive trip down the river. If you ever end up out West, my crew and I would love to show you a positive trip down some whitewater and I promise we won't berate you if you take a swim or two.
Please don't give up because your pro bro was a dick. Seems he'd make a better comedian than a boating companion.
