Red Bull TV – Chasing Niagara

I have just finished watching the full version of Chasing Niagara (just over 1 hrs worth of action). It has been available for a while via iTunes at a cost. However it is currently available to watch for free on Red Bull TV.

CHASING NIAGARA follows Rafa Ortiz, a celebrated pioneer of big waterfall kayaking, as he pushes himself to the limit and redefines his sport by daring to dream the impossible – successfully descending Niagara Falls. To prepare for this highly dangerous drop, Ortiz enlists a team of fellow professional kayakers, including Rush Sturges, Evan Garcia, and Tyler Bradt, to help him train and document the process. As they take on lightning fast rapids and massive waterfalls in exotic locales, they soon find that what started as one man’s epic quest, evolves into an intense three-year journey of self-discovery and friendship that forces them to redefine their own definitions of bravery, purpose, and ambition.

Unsponsored Christmas Special 2016

Christmas day is always a big visitor day here on Unsponsored. In previous years visits go up by around 30%+. Last year was the first time I did a special post and it was very well received. I hope this post goes down at least as well and offers a little bit of escapism to those who need it.

Merry Christmas and happy New year to all. Stay safe and paddle hard!
