    • Sports

The All-Around King of Whitewater Kayaking. Hello everybody, we've got another action packed episode loaded up for you all with yet another elite Red Bull sponsored athlete. This is the story behind the king of the rapids and the guy who kayaks off waterfalls taller than most buildings... for fun... this is becoming Dane Jackson! ... Before we go any further, it's worth mentioning that we had some audio interference during the recording so we apologise for that in advance, we cleaned a lot of it up but stick through it with us as you're going to learn a lot from Dane during this episode! ... Dane is the king kayaking and a true world champion. Dane's whole life has been centered around kayaking, he's a freestyle kayaker who grew up travelling the US in an RV with his family, getting home schooled by his mum and chasing kayak competitions with his dad, Eric Jackson, a world champion and Olympic paddler... A trophy case of over 80 first place wins would indicate Dane's love for competition, but like us, you'll learn in this episode that what really drives Dane is not the competition, but his obsession with having a good time! .... Whether that's getting to travel and kayak in some of the worlds most beautiful locations or refusing the listen to TLC's hit song title... where he does in-fact love chasing waterfalls and kayaks willingly over the edge of them! ... Similar to one of our previous episode with international parkour superstar Dom Tomato, you may think Dane is another adrenaline junkie, and to a certain degree he is, but in this episode, you're going to learn the careful planning, preparation and teamwork involved that allowed Dane to 'safely' kayak over a 134ft waterfall... You're going to learn what the hell nose blunts, McNasty's and Air Screws are as well as a tonne of great safety tips on how Dane kayaks some of the worlds most dangerous rapids as well as the process he uses to flip his kayak over when he gets caught in a rapid... Prior to this chat we couldn't believe our eyes in watching some of the moves this guys pulls in a kayak, but he broke down for stacks of kayaking terminology into easily digestible information for all us not-so-pro-paddlers... So if you're an avid kayaking fan, get excited by any outdoor adventure activities or are interested in learning how an elite athlete like Dane operates, then prepare to be inspired because you're going to love this episode.
