Freestyle Canoeing, with Midwestern Stylings

Over the last few weeks we've updated our blog with some of the gnarliest whitewater videos on the web. It's time to switch up the paddling footage, just a bit.

Here's a highlight from a freestyle canoeing festival, straight out of the Midwest. Everything is classic middle America, from the mispronunciation of the word at the beginning of the competition to the 80s soundtrack the moves are performed to.
