Rafting Films

The thought occurred to me after reading the National Exposure thread that I have never seen any feature length films or documentaries on the sport of rafting. Not even any 1/2 hour TV shows. Is anyone aware of any such presentations and where they can be accessed?
Thanks,
Windknot2

Rafting Into Siberia

The Altai Region is a mountainous area in Russia's infamous Siberian territory. The landscape is filled with dense forests, powerful rivers, expansive plains, villages, steppes, lakes, glaciers and long-running ridges expanding 2000 kilometers. One of the three main rivers of the Altai is the Katun. This video documents a joint Russian-American team whitewater rafting on the Katun River, a frigid, turbulent waterway. The travelogue captures some of the spectacular vistas and sights in the Russian wilderness, as well as the invigorating excitement and challenges in whitewater rafting along the Katun River. Anyone who loves rafting or curious about an untamed Russian countryside will enjoy the escapes on this video.

The Yunnan Great Rivers Expedition Synopsis

In a remote corner of Southwest China, three of Asia's greatest rivers plunge off the Tibetan Plateau through steep canyons in the Himalayas thousands of feet deep. This stunningly beautiful film captures the incredible journey of a whitewater expedition, as it explores the upper Mekong, Salween and Yangtze rivers. More than a wild adventure, the two-month expedition was an ambitious partnership with the Nature Conservancy and the Chinese government to help protect one of the most biodiverse and culturally diverse regions in the world.

Oh yeah, lets not forget the real river rafting porn too!

Shane's World 20: Ragin' Rapids



Synopsis

"Team Shane's World hit the rapids in search of extreme adventure. After a long day of river rafting everyone was pretty horny. As soon as Blair pitched her tent, she sent out to pitch Shawn's. It didn't take much convincing before Shawn was banging away on Blair. Her screams and moans must have really got to Billy because before long he had Salena bent over in the tent. The next morning it was back on the river, but not before Shawn could get in some action on the raft. He was putting Chennin into positions you know she had been dreaming about yesterday! By the time we stopped at the waterfall for lunch, shy little Rain-ahh knew that if she wanted any action on this trip she better speak up. She dove on to Billy and then took such a hard pounding from him that she squirted. Everybody got wet on this trip!"



I believe it is an instructional video, though I have yet to see it.

This is available on Netflix streaming:

Damned River

It's terrible, but so campy it has a certain appeal.

Thanks for all the leads on videos. Most everyone appreciates all the exposure they can get to others in our sport, especially to "Instructional videos". I will start looking into these films.
