Watch: Kayakers Rocket Down Drainage DitchBen Marr hits 35 mph kayaking Canada's Lions Bay Slide
Athlete Ben Marr hiked up a huge drainage ditch in Lions Bay, British Columbia, to kayak down the chute known as Lions Bay Slide. He and two friends rocket down the slick pavement in this video posted to Marr's Facebook page on Sept. 30, 2013. At one point he claims to have reached a speed of 56 kilometers per hour, or about 35 miles per hour. As the video shows, that's pretty fast in a kayak.
