“The initial project was to run a 100+ ft waterfall. When BoofSessions Kayaking Ecuadorshowed me a photo of this beautiful drop, things changed. Numbers didn’t matter so much anymore, it was all about putting all the pieces together to paddle over this aesthetic yet tricky First D. And once again I am thankful for the change of plans.” –Nouria Newman
Massive congratulations to French kayaker Nouria Newman who has written her name in the history books as the first female to run a 100ft+ waterfall (Pucunco Falls, Ecuador). Here’s a quick Instagram clip of the record setting drop taken from a feature length documentary by Red Bull that I highly recommend you watch HERE.
