“I’ve been chasing this a really long time. For me it’s the most powerful waterfall in my life.”
Pedro Oliva is a professional kayaker with a taste for adventure. And having defeated the Brazilian record with a drop at the Mississauga falls and setting a new world record kayaking the 127ft Salto Belo falls in Rio Sacre, he was champing at the bit for something else. Something which had beat Pedro before.
Back in 2011, he attempted to kayak over the powerful 82 foot high Juruena waterfalls in Mato Grosso, Brazil – but turned back, afraid to propel himself over the edge. This time, returning to the Juruena to carry out his own uncharted adventure, Pedro is determined to conquer his fear.
Witness his adrenaline pumping paddle through white water rapids to a deadly drop that would test even Nathan Drake’s crazed courage.
