Video of the 127ft Waterfall run.

See if Grandma can do this! It's all skill.

I love to dance, but who needs the music- It throws me off.

Landing completely inverted, on your head, is all skill? Bold and sick... but no points for style.

The photo is more impressive since you can't tell the flop happened.

That was the biggest alleyoop in history. Rush Sturges will be jealous.

that is quite possibly the biggest freewheel attempt ever on record

Yahoo! has a brief video story about it, its worth watching just to listen to how dumb the anchors are...."EVEN his kayak survived intact"....jabronies

Loved the pic when I got the email, video hurt. OUCH! Did he wash behind the falls and eddy out? Big balls, to send that drop though.

The skill involved with that was picking a drop and a line that was so forgiving you could blow it that badly and survive. Might as well have been in a barrel.
