11 minutes (river trip)
Whitewater kayaking in Taiwan, Lee Wu River, Fu Shan, Wu Li. AIRE inflatable kayaks, Dagger and Prijon hardshells. The put in was about 50 minutes from our clubhouse in Taipei County (minutes from Taipei City). This metro area consists of 6.7 million citizens.
A friend of The Boat People Inflatable Kayak & Raft Specialists on vacation in Taiwan taught these Taiwanese and made these movies in 2000 with an iMac DV and iMovie 1. The iMac DV was the only PC capable of making a movie like this for under USD10K. For our kayak club I made helmet face guards mandatory because:
1: Everyone were beginners having never touched a kayak.
2: For 90%, sports in general were never done at any age so there was a lack of "general" knowledge, reflexes, experience in water...
3: The creeks often were shallow, fast flowing, sharp rocks, and land slides common and often. A place you'd just been yesterday now had jungle trees spread through the water.
4: Combine the above with many not really able to catch eddies and more unable to roll.
5: A monkey could swing down and try to eat your face.
6: Friends don't let friends get hurt!
Our club were the first to run these rivers, incredible they were so close to town. There was no rescue/ambulance system in the country. When I saw this it was just another reason for "7." in the the above list. An ambulance rescue was being thrown in the back of a taxi.
The source files have been lost so I can only put an image/text at the front/back of the original movie. It's no longer TV quality as it once was. This is a copy of copies of copies of rendered output. DARN!
There will be a few more to come.
