As if dropping waterfalls in a kayak wasn’t crazy enough, we now have people going over them on just a river board. In the case of the video below, we find boarder Josh Galt dropping the Gorilla Falls on the Green River Narrows near Asheville, NC. It looks like quite a ride, but not one I’ll be taking any time soon.
I worked with Josh on two Primal Quest races and I can tell you he is the consummate professional. I know that he takes safety into consideration first when ever he gets into the water and I’m sure that’s the case here as well. River boarding off waterfalls and big rapids is probably going to be a new trend though, so I expect similar videos that push the boundaries even further in the future.
