Rey Del Rio Waterfall World Championships

Check out the highlight reel and recap of the freeride event of this December’s Rey del Rio Waterfall World Championships, produced by Altius Events. “Definitely, totally experimental,” is how event athlete and media organizer Rush Sturges describes the championships’ finale, in which he took second place, behind fellow U.S. competitor Pat Keller. Spain’s Aniol Serrasolses took third place, followed by Canada’s Ben Marr in fourth and Galen Volckhausen (USA) in fifth. The progressive, judged competition, which Keller calls the “best event ever in kayaking, by far,” calculated style points for a roster of elite international kayakers who completed the course marked by three massive back-to-back-to-back vertical falls on Chiapas, Mexico’s remote Agua Azul.
