all the training these lads did paid off. I watched them do laps on the rec center waterslide while getting chased off by lifeguards. The dedication was incredible. They would sit around the shop outfitting their tubes for hours while watching the tube porn (er was it porntube?) in any case mad props!

Most importantly, did they get Ice Cream for not parking at 32nd street?

Although I know that it's not the first tube descent of Vallecito, that was awesome. Definitely pushing the limits of the sport to whole new levels. Kids these days.

Niko and crew,

I think the tubing video is hilarious. It brought tears to my eyes also; not from boredom but from laughter.

The short has a fine balance of realism and satire. It's a synthesis of Steve Fisher (the most extreme kayaker in the world) and Jonathan Swift (let them eat their babies).

I'm waiting for your next video--extreme tubing on Pandora's Box.

Kayaking is all played out. Extreme tubing is the new vanguard for whitewater progression. A great tribute to Shane.
Long live Saucerboy!!!

It is. I learned on the Chattooga. Great handle.
I ask because I am from the same area. I am from Oconee County South Carolina. I grew up on the Chattooga, but have yet to paddle there. I did not start boating until I moved out west. I know crazy. I plan to hit Gauley Fest, and the Talluah Gorge release this year though :)

You need to hit Section III. If you're good with IV+, get someone to take you down Section IV. The Neely book actually gives decent descriptions of the rapids.
