Directed by Corey Rich @coreyrichproductions | Last week, my friend Dane Jackson (@danejacksonkayak), who I have known since he was a kid and who I have watched grow into one of the greatest kayaker of all time, lived his dream. He dropped Salto del Maule, a 134-foot waterfall in central Chile that he had been dreaming about for the past five years. His descent ranks as the second-tallest waterfall ever dropped. Although Dane did come out of his boat after he stuck the landing, he achieved a striking first descent with this one asterisk. And as we discovered, Dane’s might be this waterfalls last descent as a major hydroelectric project upstream threatens to turn this powerful waterfall into a mere dribble, adding a certain momentousness to the whole event.
There’s a lot of pressure to capture something that is only going to happen once and takes just three seconds before it’s over. We had a ton of cameras, and more importantly, an incredible team. @novusselect @blighguy @nomademediahouse @lorenzokayak @flowmotionaerials
