Before Jimmy Carter was President, He Canoed Some Sketchy Sh*t

Teddy Rosevelt wasn’t the only president that spent quality time outdoors. Before he was in the White House, Carter was running whitewater. In 1974 Carter canoed Georgia’s Chattooga River in an open-faced canoe with pal Claude Terry, owner of southeastern expeditions. They managed to survive the wild Bull Sluice rapid, which is a prominent class IV rapid that even keeps the most experienced boaters on their toes. That feat made the duo the first to ever complete a tandem canoe descent of the rapid.

But what’s more remarkable than Carter’s impressive first descent, is that he used the experience as a catalyst to protect the river. Following his canoe trip, he did what he could as Governor of Georgia to help pass legislation that designated the Chattooga as a Wild and Scenic river system. Now decades later, the river remains just as wild as Carter found it.

Skateboarders pride themselves on their ability to face down incredibly sketchy situations and take injuries without complaint, and nowhere is that attitude more evident than at the Dolores Hill Bomb, an annual event loosely "held" on Dolores Street in San Francisco's Mission District.

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.
