Extreme Kayaking: Tyler Bradt's World Record 186-Foot Drop Over Palouse Falls

Luliu

A two-page photo spread in this week's Sports Illustrated brought the news of his epic feat last month (April 21, 2009) in Palouse Falls State Park (above) in Washington.

Bradt obliterated the previous kayak waterfall world record of 127 feet set on March 4, 2009 by Pedro Olivia of Brazil, who hit speeds of 70mph in his freefall down the Salto Belo Falls into the water of the Rio Sacre, a tributary of the Amazon.

Details of Olivia's feat are here.

Or just watch it (below).

Now, don't you feel better?

Incredible! What an adrenalin charge that must have been for him. And a new world record too.
