What Happens When Gnarly 100'+ Waterfall Hucks Go Wrong?

Gnarly Waterfall Drop In Chile

The Puma from Substantial Media House on Vimeo. The Puma - one of the hardest waterfalls ever paddled. Not only is this beast over 100 feet tall - it has a super tricky lead in, and 1/2 of the volume of the water in the drop runs into a room of doom eddy. Sound fun? You know this drop is super legit when a guy like Evan Garcia had to look at it quite a few times before running it. Evan styled his line, but the physics of the drop compressed / folded his boat and did some damage to his leg....check out the vid! Props to EG for having some huge brass cahones and skills to pay the bills.
