Very impressive - even more so when you see how easily it can go wrong!!

I was impressed with the following clip ........



Then even more so when I realized how spectacularly it can go wrong and the crowd clearly love the crashes!!!!

No more than he did all those years ago, what you can't see is his bag of jelly babies and the latest copy of "Womens Realm".

Went in one in NZ for 5 mins on a man made lake/pond about 5ft deep. Scariest thing I've ever been in. Channels were 12ft wide and 90 degree turns at god knows how fast. Some big block engine in the back. Deafening!

Didn't quite know what I was letting myself in for. First of a group to try. Kiwis are nuts! It was far scarier than the Nevis bungee or skydiving. Very very exhilarating!
