Over The Edge: A Kayaker Sets a Record

Thursday, May 21, 2009

Tyler Bradt took his kayak off a 186-foot waterfall this month. For fun. After plunging approximately 20 feet underwater and being submerged for about seven seconds, Bradt surfaced from his dive off of Palouse Fall with little more than a sprained wrist and the wind knocked out of him. This successful dive allowed Bradt to reclaim the world record. He is off to conquer the waterfalls of Norway and Iceland, but before he goes, he is stopping by The Takeaway.

Wonder what extreme kayaking looks like? Here's a peek:
