Video: Paddler Sets New Record For Biggest Drop In A Canoe
Last fall, paddler Jim Coffey made an epic drop in an open canoe, going over the 60-foot (18.2 meter) La Cascada de Truchas on the Alseseca River in Mexico. In doing so, he broke a 20-year old record, and wrote his own name in the annals of paddling history. The video below shares his story and gives us some unbelievable footage from his run. If you thought big drops in a kayak were scary, wait until you get a load of this one. Don't try this at home kids. There is a reason the previous record stood for so long.
