VIDEO. They go down the Doubs jump in a kayak, a first

These kayakers have challenged themselves to descend this impressive waterfall. With 25 meters of height and a flow of 70 cubic meters of water per second, it is one of the biggest waterfalls ever descended in Europe. Located in the east of France, the Saut du Doubs is normally impossible to practice kayaking because of a concrete slab located in the middle of the fall. But the heavy rains that fell on the region in October 2019 brought the river into flood, allowing at the same time the descent.

The three kayakers then jumped in a vertiginous fall precipitating underwater for five seconds. Once they came to the surface and recovered from their emotions, they were able to enjoy their feat.
