Most of the time BDP is trolling. They are really really good at it. They haven't broken any laws, (well... none that can be proven) and have no sponsors, so if you complain you are adding fuel to the fire. They have nothing to lose so anytime they hear people distressing over their actions they likely get a kick out of it.

Also I don't think it's fair to lump BombFlow in with BDP. Ya there is a lot of cross over with the paddlers, but all you have to do is note the difference in their videos to realize the media they put out is very different. Plus who wants those guys losing their sponsorships, I want more BombFlow!

It's understandable if one is offended by their material, but outside of complaining on forums or in person there isn't much that will happen. I will watch all the videos they release, I may not agree with everything they do, but the kayaking in their videos is solid.

I've come to the conclusion BDP for the most part is good guys but its like ruby. He's smart enough to separate rush. Good luck climbing out of the whole. And where ever else you find your self needing a hand.. I learned the hard way. Good luck obviously you boys aren't smart enough to learn from some one else mistake mike perry with 5,117 posts over 5 years dam I have a lot of time on my hand. Must have a life other than kayaking like a job, what's that? Shit what you can run the shit and still live a normal life.

Here's some true words I already know most of you can't read...

Respect, love, community! Grow the fuck up BDP simple as that. I'm sure there mother tells them the same thing...

Tell me about it! been here for 16 years. However, the attitude behind calling women bitches is also super conservative and socially backwards.

BDP and Larry Flynt

Here’s an analogy. The Bomb Flow crew is like Hugh Hefner. The BF guys made kayak porn cool and classy by adding professional photos, engaging dialogue, and exotic locations. BF, like Hefner and Playboy, dominated the market for awhile, until along came a guy named Larry Flynt and similarly a crew calling themselves BDP. The Balls Deep Production guys are like Flynt and his magazine, Hustler (except for instead of sitting in a wheel chair they sit in kayaks and don’t make money from their product).

Flynt didn’t care about stylized photo shoots or social commentary; he just wanted women spread across the pages in as graphic a way as possible. Flynt was all about shocking the world and making money. He quickly became a lightning rod for feminist groups, such as NOW, and Christian coalitions, such as that led by Jerry Falwell. Flynt went to battle numerous times in the U.S. legal system over one of America’s most sacred rights—the right to freedom of speech.

The collective sum of all of his court cases is that even though his material is offensive, and even degrading, to many people, Flynt still has the legal right to publish his material, as long as the women are consenting adults. BDP has the right to post their material on the Internet (although there are some questionable instances of copyright infringement).

So if the BDP boys are such bad asses, the next time they are at a put in for some gnarly run or scouting some burly drop, they should wear diapers made from the American flag and tell the world to fuck off, making sure to capture it all on video. That would certainly make Larry Flynt proud. And, more importantly, they would have the right to do so under the First Amendment.

If you take a second and see Tits Deep´s reaction to that post on BDP´s Facebook (which I have never heard of before , it might give you some insight in some underlying dynamics between the two groups of fine young men and women... Though, maybe a slight toning down of the language on BDP would be beneficial for the general image of our sport..

Relax, breathe, go to the river and run a nice rapid everybody. Even if it is Gorilla up-side down. At least she ran it. Multiple times.

Is it sexist to say Mariann is super hot? I enjoy all the amazing videos of people pushing hard in kayaking. The lifestyle stuff is just that. I'm not here to judge.

Dude, every one of your comments is a sweeping generalization. Bible loving conservative country? True for some, but have you noticed we currently have a LIBERAL BLACK PRESIDENT?

All the hate comes from our old school moral standing as a conservative bible thumping country?

Americans can't party or have as progressive viewpoints as Europe?

Ridiculous broad generalizations. You Sir, only want to hear yourself talk. You don't know any of the buzzards, you don't know any of these kayakers, you're in IRELAND: Mind your own f***cking business.
