Urban kayaking - with a twist... - Stuart Smith

Rating: ****

An article about the film Twitch, an exciting kayaking adventure!

Brandon Knapp, Stuart Smith and David Norell kayaked down a 232 meter concrete channel that drops down the side of a mountain in to the ocean at ludicrous speed, 50 km per hour! This alarming speed was fats enough to lift the bow if their kayaks, luckily no one was injured. The trio is now known as the speed champions.

I would now love to see their film Twitch. Their very dangerous and exciting adventure sounds very, very, very fun! Their kayaking adventure also seems a little too dangerous for me. I really want to learn how to white water kayak, but I don't think I will be kayaking down a concrete channel any time soon

This article is exciting, from the speed champions themselves. Making an awesome kayaking slide of a manmade concrete channal, they put their lives at risk to have a great time.
