It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a really great – and by really great I mean crazy – whitewater kayaking video. The one below should help fill the void however as it features some of the top paddlers taking on some of the wildest rivers you’ll find anywhere. It has everything you’d want in a video like this one, including crazy drops and impressive acrobatics.
The video also happens to be the teaser trailer for the Rider of the Year awards which surveys the some of the best whitewater kayakers in the world to select who amongst them had the most impressive year out on the water. Those awards include “Best Rider,” “Best Trick,” and “Best Drop” of course, but also the not-so-conventional “Honey Badger Award” and “Hendri Coetzee Award.” Find out more on the official website or on the Rider of the Year Facebook page.
