A special trick – level 2
Spanish kayaker Aniol Serrasolses made a very special trick in his kayak. He became the first person in the world who made a double kickflip off a waterfall.
Just before the stunt, Serrasolses had an accident. He flew 10 meters in the air and he landed on his face. Then he was okay and he could continue.
The kayaker started his stunt on a volcano in Chile and he went down for about 25 kilometers. He reached the speed of 100 kmph and he performed tricks and jumps. He continued through a forest and he ended up in a river. There he performed the special trick while he was falling off the waterfall.
Serrasolses was very happy because it was his dream to go in his kayak on snow.
Difficult words: kayaker (a person who uses a kayak – a light boat for one or two people), kickflip (a trick when a person turns 360 degrees), stunt (an unusual and difficult trick which many people watch).
