Video of Fluid's new big creek boat, the Big Bang. This time some action from two different rivers I hit last week here in South Africa, near to Cape Town. The boat performed really well, exceeding my expectations as I usually paddle the large Solo and didn't know how a larger boat would handle. It was great! The first river shows the infamous Hotel Rapid on the Molenaars, followed by the one shortly after the weir and then the last rapid above the usual take out. The rest is the Witte, and I apologise for the misty footage!! I don't know why it did that, both the Monday and Tuesday on the Molenaars it performed just fine.
