9 Runs of Lava - Colorado River

Nine rafts run Lava Rapid on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon during late November of 2008. Probably around 8-9000 cfs. One swimmer, one bump into 'Cheese Grater Rock'. No major carnage. My first YouTube video post. Experimenting with high quality full screen uploads. The HD version 'stutters'/audio not synched.

Lava Falls Rapid - 38 foot drop! - Grand Canyon - Wilderness River Adventures (Slow Motion)
Lava Falls is the fastest navigable river water in the northern hemisphere. There is a 38 foot drop and it all takes place in seconds, so I slowed down the action by shooting in 60 fps. THIS VERSION IS AT QUARTER SPEED. See my channel for another one at HALF SPEED. This video was taken using an Astak ActionPro camera mounted on an iPole from FastCap. I will be posting a second POV angle taken using a Contour ROAM 2 mounted on an iPole Mini. This is just one of many clips that will follow taken while in the Grand Canyon on the Colorado River. Butch, our fearless Boatman and his Swamper Chongo can be seen in the background making sure all of us are safe, but trust me... it's one of the most difficult rapids in the world to navigate. They just make it look easy. This adventure was booked through Wilderness River Adventures (RiverAdventures.Com)... If you want to experience a trip like this, they are the best of the best. FYI... I'm the one sitting in the first seat on the side wearing the hat... with my eyes literally bulging out of their sockets. Special thanks to Paul Akers from FastCap for the iPole and suggesting the Astak camera. Without the iPoles, I would never have been able to capture this moment.
