and you are obviously not a kayaker, and should not be referencing it as "our" sport.
whether this one works or is a "good" idea or not is beside the point; shaun baker has in the past thrown himself in a kayak off some GNARLY drops, and will continue to do so when he isn't jet kayaking. he held the world record freefall for several years, and when he isn't hucking off major waterfalls im sure he's out charging down the scariest creeks he can find too.
you may not like these antics, but he's more of a kayaker than you, than me, than anyone here, more than about 99% of people will ever. so rip on the antics, not the kayaker.
