Our new Play Now series highlights an epic POV clip so you can get in on the action even when you're stuck behind a desk. This week, kayaker Aeon Russo takes us to the lake district of Chile to run the Rio Nevado. Russo says the river dropped in right under 300 feet per mile, giving rise to a bevy of boofs and waterfalls. Naturally, Russo got dunked and caught it on camera.
