In late November, kayakers Pat Keller, Isaac Levinson, and Chris Gragtmans traveled to Noccalula Falls, located in Alabama to scout out the possibilities for making a first descent of that waterway. They found the river swollen from recent storms, running fast, and in good condition. So, all three proceeded to drop over Noccalula and capture it all on video. The falls are 90 feet (27 meters) in height and look scary as hell, particularly from the helmet cams, which capture the “oh sh!t” moment oh so well.
Technically, Keller went first, but his mates weren’t far behind. Check it out below.
