Kayak sky dive

So is this playboating?

Pretty cool. I guess if you get bored enough, you'll try anything.

There should be a thread with the best youtube kayak clips. That would fill a bored afternoon up.

The jumper is Miles Dasher and most of the footage is from Burning Time by SLP

That is still some sweet footage.

I bet next year someone will get James Bond with it and sky-yak onto a river, pull out their paddle, cut their chute and run some narr. Maybe then drop off another huge water fall and pop a second chute. Or maybe sky-yak onto snow, cut the chute and launch into a river at the bottom of the sno-yaking run.

There was an article in either kayak or paddler magazine showing that stunt as well, a while back. He first tried a kingpin, bout couldn't get it from rolling on him, so he had to pull out. It free fell some 1000ft (might be wrong on the number, but what ever is good for sky diving), hit the ground, bounced, and only had some oilcanning. Good plastic. The second boat he tried is the one in the video.
