GoPro shows you what kayaking off a waterfall looks like, from 4 gnarly angles

gopro deal gives pro broadcasters more options for live action shots dane jackson kayak

When we profiled adventure sports photographer Lucas Gilman, one of the activities he shoots is extreme kayaking off a waterfall. While most of us will never find ourselves in such a situation, to get an idea of what it’d be like to partake in such a thrill, a kayaker named Dane Jackson shot a first-person video of himself going over a 60-foot waterfall in Mexico, with a GoPro Hero3+ camcorder. 

The video, made by GoPro, shows what it takes to kayak off a waterfall, from beginning to end. We see Jackson and crew scaling the cliff, with kayak in tow. From there, we see Jackson going over the La Tomata waterfall from different angles: from above, behind, in front, and from Jackson’s point of view.GoPro says all the shots in the minute-long video were recorded with Hero3+ camcorders. It may be a marketing stunt, but you have to give it to GoPro for making some awesome footage with its gear.
