Jim Coffey breaks waterfall record for open canoe!

Hey guys!

We just got back from a season in Mexico, where we got to run some pretty cool rivers, including Rio de Oro and Roadside Alseseca. Additionally, Jim Coffey fired up 18m Cascada Truchas, breaking the 20 year record for an open canoe.

Here is the video. Skip to 7:40 if all you are interested in is breaking the record.

Totally bad ass.

Do the new open boat's design make this more manageable? I can't say easy because that entrance was spooky. But is there better control? I am looking forward to a whole new wave of C1 porn coming out. Yay, someone older than 30 somthin- a whole new way to set records...
