Chasing Niagara Trailer

"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.

Here's the official trailer for Rush Sturges' documentary Chasing Niagara, direct from YouTube:

When pro kayaker Rafa Ortiz decides to follow his dream to paddle over Niagara Falls, he sets in motion an incredible series of events that eventually takes on a life of its own. To prepare for this mission, Rafa enlists the help of world-renowned paddler Rush Sturges and a tight team of their friends. Together they go on a remarkable three-year journey from the rainforest rivers of Mexico to the towering waterfalls of the U.S. Northwest. Chasing Niagara is directed by filmmaker Rush Sturges, making his feature directing debut with this documentary. The film opened in Europe last year, but it just arriving in the US this year. Chasing Niagara opens in select US theaters + on VOD/iTunes starting this July. Who wants to see this?

My younger edition would enjoy that very much. I don't like watching what I haven't done, makes me think should I reconsider doing it and that's plain craziness ...
