VIDEO: Crazy Geology and Epic Whitewater on Chile’s Rio Claro

Dane Jackson has traveled around the world in search of whitewater to kayak, so when he says that a section of river is "about as narrow, committing, and epic as it ever gets," we'll take him at his word. Based on this video, we're hard-pressed to come up with a section of river that exists in the same league as the Rio Claro, much less eclipses it.

The virtually impassible walls, waterfalls, and tight chutes present on this river make whitewater kayaking the only way to explore it, and it's hard to imagine how one could evacuate should something go wrong. With all that in mind, we'll probably never run it, so big thanks to Dane Jackson for posting this video and letting us live vicariously through him.

I have watched the video of Jackson and was really an interesting video. I think it was an adventurous ride. Mostly preferred such types of videos and its only reason why I am a regular visitor of this site and this is one of my favorites Learn More Here

But that's exactly what the guys who thought up the X-Project did. They've basically taken windsurfing and combined it with skiing powder and then mixed it all together with snowboarding and snow-kiting too. The film features athletes Maxime Chabloz with a snow-kite and Ueli Kestenholz speed riding. Chabloz is a junior world champion in both

When you're one of the best kayakers in the world, you have get a little creative when it comes to pushing the sport. The Catalan paddler Aniol Serrasolses has been doing just this while hunkered down in Chile for most of 2020. After landing a trick he dubbed the "Cobra Flip" last year, it became pretty clear that whatever Aniol did next was going to be nuts. We've seen all those snow kayaking videos that circle around social media every winter, but Aniol pushes it to next level by launching

Big Water Kayaking on the Zambezi

It's no secret that Dane Jackson, Benny Marr, Bren Orton, Kalob Grady, and Isaac Hull are some of the best paddlers in the game right now and watching this, it's easy to see why. While many paddlers opt for the warm winters and waterfalls of Mexico, Chile, and Ecuador, those in search of big waves take a different path. Africa's Zambezi river is famous for its massive big water features and all time freestyle waves. When taken on by world-class playboaters like Benny Marr and Dane Jackson,
