See the Trailer for Extreme Kayaking Documentary 'Chasing Niagara'
"Is it worth it to possibly lose a friend?" Red Bull Media has unveiled a trailer for a documentary film called Chasing Niagara, profiling the life of "extreme kayaker" Rafa Ortiz and his dream of paddling over the Niagara Falls. The doc looks at the way he takes big risks to live a life on the edge, literally, kayaking over waterfalls and in places where no one has ever kayaked before. Of course Red Bull is releasing this film, it's right up their alley. The footage is impressive as it seems they've captured some of the best shots they could of Rafa and his crew, including footage from cameras mounted to his helmet. I'm a big fan and supporter of adventure junkies and risk takers, and this looks like another exhilarating, inspiring doc about them. Enjoy.
