Crazy 'boaters - BUBLIK

I posted this under another thread (creature craft) and Barry indicated it was worthy of starting it's own thread so here goes.

This is proof that luck may be better than preparation . . . . or
Stupid people do screw with the gene pool . . . . or
Maybe these guys just are that good

You be the judge . . .

The crazy Russians are at it again! I love that they think their paddles going every which way is somehow helping them.

Is the word "safe" in the Russian vocabulary? Clearly the words "dumb" and "as" and "shit" are. Why do I keep seeing videos online of Russians doing such insane-o dumbass shit? Most of it is not even close to cool. Dangling from a 1000ft crane. Wow, extreme! Two donut tubes tied together with logs running some stout? Makes sense! Fail proof! "What's a wrap??"
There must be something in the water/vodka. Russians come here every Jan. for their holiday, and I hate to stereotype, but THEY SUCK. I understand cultural differences, that they're a cold and direct culture, etc etc, but who cares...They're so rude and mean and pushy and shallow, no part of me EVER wants to visit there. Watching thier terrible videos adds to my case and really makes me wonder....
Hey, SWEET soundtrack though!

Blade... so much hate and anger! Being more extreme than another is really bred in Russian society, especially in boys at young age. Maybe it is dumb and not safe, but that's what pushes the early explorers to achieve higher results.

I really doubt any of the first ascends on American rivers were safe or followed the rules.

And yes, there is "safe" in Russian vocabulary. Now that I have a kid and a family, I run the safest lines and avoid those holes if I can help it. Though, it wasn't the case before I settled down.

I'm not sure which is more magical about that donut, its ability to get pinned and stuck in holes or the fact that the logs connecting it actually stayed together...

That river in the video is the Bashkaus in Siberia. We were the first all kayak descent of it in 2001. It was totally gnarly. There are over 15 different memorials to Russian's who have died running the river.

Olaf, Sutton and some of the best Euro paddlers did a great movie on it last year, Watch This:

(embed if anyone knows how)

This is'nt Cali Glamour boating, this is dig deep inside and pull through with no real reward or epic picture for the magazines.

You too can go and sign the Book of Legends!
