Kayaker Ben Brown Goes Back To Huka Falls

The intrepid athlete returns to conquer the falls at Waikato, New Zealand's longest river.

New Zealand kayaker Ben Brown has travelled the world in search of unexplored white waters to drop into, but when it comes to true challenges there’s apparently no place like home.

The most respected paddler in his home country, Brown has dropped all of New Zealand’s trickiest spots multiple times and one of his favourites is Huka Falls.

Check out the video above to see Brown doing his thing at the falls in front of a gaggle of surprised spectators.
