    Video: GoPro Captures High-Speed Canyon Run at Lake Powell

    Chances are you’ve already seen this video: a fun, first person view of a daring personal watercraft rider shooting the canyons at Lake Powell aboard a turbo-powered Honda F-12X. Powell’s towering walls overshadow thin veins of crystal blue water stretching out like tendrils into the brown desert. Sadly, water levels at Powell continue to slump to record lows. In fact, most all water levels in the Southwest are slinking back because of the ongoing drought in California. Despite warnings, penalties and fines issued by local and state government, Californians seem to be defiant that they’re running out of water.

    We mention this not to bring up any sort of political slant, but to prime the pump for what we witnessed in the video’s comment section. Normally, any person who values their sanity avoids the comment section of any YouTube video like a lice-ridden burlap sack full of bubonic plague. The video is fun and we’re sure any one of us would love the chance to recreate it, but a depressing amount of commentators are calling for the public execution of this rider, GoPro, the manufacturers of PWC and well, just check ‘em out for yourself.

    The post Video: GoPro Captures High-Speed Canyon Run at Lake Powell appeared first on The Watercraft Journal.
