The Top 30 Whitewater Kayaking Photos by Red Bull

 

 

Red Bull, the wing-giving purveyors of all things extreme, has graciously granted the Sifter total access to their incredible library of photographs and videos. Following up from the popular feature on the Cliff Diving World Series earlier this year, we explore the adrenaline-pumping sport of whitewater kayaking.

The Sifter went through Red Bull’s collection of about 500 whitewater kayaking photographs last night and is proud to present our Top 30 Whitewwater Kayaking Photos by Red Bull. Please note that these are in no particular order. Hats off to the incredible athletes and photographers for granting us such an incredible glimpse into this beautiful sport. Enjoy!
