Did you read the article in Outside Online's blog that went with their hype of the trailer:
"Ask any of these huckers the obvious question—um, why?—and you get everything from "For my personal progression" (Bradt) to "It was close to my house" (Glissmeyer). Given all the press coverage, it's tempting to agree with Curry that the sport is booming, but in fact just the opposite is true. White water kayaking is in serious decline, with American paddlers spending some 50 percent fewer days on the water than at the beginning of the decade, sponsorship dollars drying up, and the once-raging pro freestyle tour all but gone.
For elite athletes, launching huge waterfalls may be the new frontier, but it's also one of the few remaining ways to scratch out a living in a boat."
Here that? Your sport is on its way OUT
