Definitely impressive . . . in its stupidity or greatness?

I love how EPIC the whole video is, "the most extreme thing man has ever done." Plus, the slow-mo putting on the helmet. Anyway, I guess this is the world-record for riding a dingy over some falls (probably not many other entrants) but here's another kayaker going over 186 foot falls in WA state:

He should have just jumped off the cliff. He stayed inside his dinghy for about 0.7 seconds.

"He should have just jumped off the cliff. He stayed inside his dinghy for about 0.7 seconds."

I thought the same thing. Would have more entertaining if he went over in an inflatable rubber duck.
