Majoy Gorge – SIBERIA – Kostya’s GoPro

Majoy Gorge – SIBERIA – Kostya’s GoPro from Callum Strong on Vimeo.

After a week of waiting for the exceptionally high water to drop and running sections of the Lower Chuya in Summer 2012 six of us finally manned up to the first kayak descent of the season of the infamous “Majoy Gorge” of the Chuya River in “polnyi pizdets” water conditions. Undoubtedly one of the finest sections of whitewater in Siberia and the world, this run offers a hectic 20km of big whitewater.

It was Kostya’s Birthday and he successfully completed the entire section without a portage including the terrifying walled in class 5+ “Presidium Rapid”…

…in a Jackson Star.

Here is the video of Kostya’s GoPro from that day on the river. A big thanks to Kostya Lubagin and Alexey Lukin for charging out in front and KayakUSSR for a very memorable day on the water.
