Drone Footage Of A Kayaker Plunging Over A 110-Foot Waterfall

October 31, 2018

Because some people don't naturally produce enough adrenaline, this is some drone footage of German competitive kayaker Adrian Mattern going over the edge of "a 110-foot waterfall at Alexandra Falls in the Northwest Territories of Canada" and disappearing into the splash-zone below. Some more info while I get my adrenaline rush carefully navigating my way past a wet floors sign on the way to the bathroom:

This fall is so challenging that only two other people have accomplished this same feat in the past, Ed Lucero and Tyler Bradt.

Honestly, I bet more than just two other people have accomplished the same feat, their bodies just haven't been found yet. HIYO! "That was morbid." It's Halloween! "And what about for someone who reads this in the future?" They'll have missed out on the special something you and I shared today....kiss me? "Are you wearing wax vampire teeth?" IT'S HALLOWEEN.

Keep going for this video as well as the one from Adrian's helmet-cam, and for everyone who celebrates Halloween on actual Halloween, be at least semi-safe out there tonight.

Thanks to Tiffany R, who agrees Adrian should have done it in a flamingo pool float for bonus style points.

    This is very impressive.
    Also it's a good video on trolling a flat-Earther

    While there's risk from hitting rocks at the bottom, the other risk is the pool beneath the falls having currents that don't let you up in time to breathe.

    The drone footage made it look crazy, but the headcam one didn't even look like that big of a drop. He kinda just flowed with the water going down and never really looked like he was falling. Im sure it was crazy, and I would never do that, but more power to the people that enjoy this risky stuff.

    agreed...i thought the POV footage would be terrifying but it was the exact opposite for me.

    Well that gave me the Halloween frights - my goodness!

    Just why - that's so so so dangerous.

    This guy has lost his box of crackers! He's just so happy to be alive at the end.
