 Highest waterfall kayak plunge-world record set by Tyler Bradt 

 Palouse Falls, Washington, USA -- Tyler Bradt, 22, paddled over 186 ft. tall Palouse Falls-setting the new world record for the Highest waterfall kayak plunge.

   Photo: It took him a grand total of 3.7 seconds to plummet 186 feet, and he reached at least 100 miles an hour in the midst of his gigantic fall. He bested the previous world record by 59 feet.(enlarge photo)

   The only injury the 22-year-old suffered was a sprained wrist and a broken paddle as he fell for four seconds over Palouse Falls before reaching the bottom.    

Tyler visually ran the waterfall countless times before climbing into his kayak. His support and safety team looked on and waited.  
 Afterwards, he said: "I have been passionate about running waterfalls for a while now. I had come to a good understanding of what I believe I am capable of and what is possible. Palouse was a calculated decision to reach further into the unknown and make a dream a reality."  

    Photo:It took him only 4 seconds to complete the fall and after some anxious moments, emerged safely in his kayak. As he emerged from the fierce spray carrying half a paddle, broken in the violent descent, he held his hands aloft, amazed and unscathed. (enlarge photo)

   Bradt had previously set a record in 2007 when he took a kayak over the 107-ft Alexandra Falls in Canada, but his feat was surpassed by a Brazilian rival went down 127-ft Salto Bello falls in Brazil.

High-res footage of this descent will be featured in the upcoming film "Dream Result", produced by Tyler Bradt and Rush Sturges. Check their websites at and for more images and video.
