Because apparently class 4 rapids are "like, whatever", these two (very possibly drunk) sisters decided to duke it out mid-raft trip in a no-holds-barred fight for the internet ages captured on the helmet cams of a group of kayakers who happened to be passing by. This is one of the most ridiculous, funny, and depressing things we've seen in awhile, so check it out and join us in wishing humanity all the best as it casually floats toward oblivion.
UPDATE: WAIT! The raft guide casually kisses one of the sisters on the lips (2:05) after the fight has cooled down. Looks like there is one more twist to this story yet...
So first things first. If a bear wants to eat your kayak. Let it. Slowly back away until you're at a safe distance and resist the urge to film it on your phone so that you totally alert and ready to react at a moment's notice. Agreed? OK, good. Now let's watch this very distraught girl beg an Alaskan black bear to stop snacking on her kayak and laugh because no one got hurt.
Humpback whales are peaceful creatures. Let's just get that out of the way right now. But they are also massive creatures, and when these kayakers wandered into a feeding zone just off of Moss Landing in Monterey, California, they nearly paid the ultimate price. Obviously the whale had no idea what was happening here (you know, because it's a whale), but as human beings with a theoretical capacity for logic, we should take this as lesson to give these 40-ton seabeasts a wider berth when joining them at the proverbial dinner table.
When compared to the likes of skateboarding, surfing, motocross, and BMX, freestyle kayaking remains largely unknown and un-noticed in the action sports community, but that doesn't mean it doesn't deserve wider recognition. Just check out this breakdown of legend-to-be, Dane Jackson, and his quiver of wild tricks and you'll see what we mean.
This one is almost hard to watch
Kayaker Dane Jackson may be only 21, but he's a kayaker's kayaker already. Rocking the pink kayak, Jackson charges waterfalls in Veracruz, Mexico like he was meant to do it.
Water, water everywhere
