    Prospector would be fine. Err, possibly. The Do anything/Go Anywhere paddler wouldn't be.

    I happened to be reading other stuff (in French, sorry) and it turns out the main guy on this was world championship material last year. Not surprising.

    I found this a few days ago, and, as part of my "broaden their horizons beyond hockey and music", sent the link to my grandkids. However, as a one time kayak surfer, but not freestyler, watched it a couple of times again myself. I like the rope sling shot into the wave, too. Just think what you get a prospector onto with one of those.

    actually the kids also sail and ski pretty well

    I wonder how the guy who was going to paddle the Rhone will get on.?

    Of course they do amazing things on a much smaller wave at Hurley Weir

    ps just watched it again. Might be persuaded to continue the resurrection of the wave ski in the garage when it warms up.
