Puruvian Andes and rain forest, because we can chew coca leaf the whole time which makes any trip better. Less altitude sickness, more energy and positivity.
If coca wasn’t legal there, Derawan Islands, Borneo Indonesia.

Outside of traveling for the sake of paddling though, I'm most intrigued by Mongolia, a nation three times the size of France with only 4.6% of France's population. Many of its inhabitants still live a nomadic lifestyle not too dissimilar to the days of the former Mongol Empire. It seems like a tranquil place of filled with natural beauty and culture untouched by Western Civilization (outside of its capital city, anyway), which automatically spikes my interest. And who knows, maybe there's some badass whitewater rivers there I don't know about.

@Mickael Loe-A-Fook One of my main life goals is to kayak (or canoe) through the Grand Canyon on a multi-day trip. Similar to what Nouria did in this video, but actually with other Class IV-V whitewater boaters. I'm not nuts enough or good enough to do a solo trip like Nouria though.

Trust me this will be a Epic undertaking and a costly one at that for many drones will be needed to pull off this cimematic marvel of amazing film making history!

I disliked it.. Not because the video was bad, but because she chose to go alone and not scout every technical part of the river she was on. I don't know if she felt pressured to do this and therefor felt like she had to do it solo, but I don't support soloing and not scouting like this.

Ray Goodwin

Hi, yes I do realise. And yes it is feasible. Done it myself on expedition in Nepal. it is normal practise on some rivers in Nepal and Northern India. All the gear has to be very lightweight and will fit in the back of a white water kayak along with some ahead of the footrest. It is not easy but very feasible. Hence she had no tent but small tarp and took advantage of a hut when it presented itself. No BS involved.
Eric Thompson

Ray Goodwin
Ray Goodwin - 4 months ago
Like many of us that have expeditioned in a kayak. It is stored in the back of the kayak or even ahead of the footrest. Normal practise unless you have raft support. So no BS. I once did a eight day expedition on the Tamba and Sun Kosi In Nepal and the only problem was carrying enough food. We were very hungry by the end.

Such an odd rule that has become like emotional snap to any conversation now.

Many times when kayaking alone makes perfect sense and far less dangerous then driving my car to the river. Then other spots that are so popular your guaranteed at least 20+ people on shore with throw bags any day the river is high or damn release is scheduled.

Know your skill level and river, don't go alone when risk is too high. Basic common sense. If I am floating down my local quickriver with some barely class 1-2 spots, going alone after 20 years has been less then risky. (its basically like a lazy river and is about 4 feet deep)

Now never go alone on rapids like Lava Falls or Pillow in WV makes more sense; basically any rapid with a known running death toll.

People at her skill level; doubt this was even coming close to testing her skills, risk was tolerable.

@BBATTLEG G this was years ago when the Internet was new, I tried for a long time to find a club and partners. It was a big waste of time and energy on my part, mostly because of where I live, there aren't as many white water rivers and kayakers. I don't even paddle on rivers anymore, as getting people to give me rides is a hassle.
I was just saying that when people give 'advice', they don't factor in that finding people isn't always easy.

In my case, when I was new to kayaking, I tried to join a local paddling club and the pompous group leader rejected me, because I didn't have experience. She didn't even offer me any options. I couldn't find anyone else in my area to go paddling with as well. So I kayaked solo on rivers for years. I had to have family members or friends give me a ride to the put in and I left my car at the take out. I don't recommend going solo, but I don't regret it, as I had no other choice, and I wasn't going to quit kayaking just because I couldn't find anyone else to paddle with.

I don't understand why she would do this solo. A sponsored kayaker should have no problem finding other people to join them. I guess it's more badass to do it solo? A paddling partner could have helped rescue her kayak when she wet exited or thrown a rope if she got pinned on that rock.

If you every go by yourself and be alone with your thoughts for an extended period of time, you will definitely understand what I am talking about.

might have to do with the fact that paddling alone is a huge taboo among whitewater kayakers and doing so it considered very foolish. Added to that it was class 5, unscouted, and remote and it really should be all thumbs down as this sort of reckless behavior should not be applauded.

Nouria has shown remarkable kayaking skills and resilience under isolated solitary and very difficult conditions, but what was her strategy if things went more pear shaped, would it involve risking the lives of others? However we will never put a older head on younger shoulders. The normal advice in these types of situations by people that have done it more and by people that have been called in to help when things go wrong, is to scout big rapids first and to not do it alone. Part of the reason for this is to minimise the risks to those that volunteer to help do a rescue or body retrieval but did not volunteer to the initial adventure, It is not all about you but others too. ,

Epic respect to Nouria for accomplishing this. I've seen those rivers and they're certainly unforgiving.
Dáire Kelly
Dáire Kelly - 7 months ago
This is no small feat, as in my opinion, solo kayaking is a far riskier prospect than free solo climbing. At least when Honnold is free soloing, he's generally on popular routes that he can bail from with relative ease by tying into a passing party at a ledge or something.

Solo paddling doesn't have that option. It's you and the river till an access point opens up. There's so many more variables at work; the river level being the most obvious, like how it changed overnight in this trip. Nouria ran this river essentially blind, and nearly with her life for an error of judgement.
Props to her for succeeding, but in my ten years of paddling, I've always looked at solo whitewater kayakers with a mixture of awe and bewilderment. It was hammered into me from the beginning to never paddle alone, precisely because of the High risk, high consequence nature of the sport. It's far beyond what I'd ever be comfortable doing, but credit where credit is due, this was amazing.
shaftfloat
shaftfloat - 5 months ago
I think climbing with no rope is more dangerous because one false MOVE and you are dead whereas one missed paddle stroke could mean a flip but does not mean death 999/1000. Whitewater is WAY more forgiving than climbing with no rope in my opinion.

I'm excited to see a girl going for a solo adventure in the wilderness. I do the same in paragliding so I really root for others puhing it.
However, I need to ask... what was the story with the swim? She put the paddle on the rock, attached herself to the boat (!), pulled off the cockpit and then we see her swimming way behind the kayak, not attached, then reuniting with it and recovering the paddle magically appearing right there... What happened there? I it a little edit dramatizing? :-)
I believe it was a great adventure but I'm in doubts if it was really as dramatic as shown in this movie.
All the best anyways, always nice to see girls pushing their limits!

I don't think she tried to dramatize anything. Nouria Newman is recognized as one of the best kayaker in the world (not female or male just kayaker). She tried to keep the boat with her, but she wasn't attached to the boat. Her plane failed when the water submerged her and she was very lucky.....She could have easily drawn. Her tears (I assume she cried a lot) testify the dangerous situation she was able to overcome. She was shivering for the cold and for the fear I guess. In any case I think she took too many risks in this expedition. I am glad she's fine.

Travel to Paddle
Travel to Paddle - 5 months ago
@shaftfloat are you suggesting I made up my reasons? I don't know a single kayaker that uses gloves and not a single kayaker that doesn't because they want to look cool. the kayakers I have met are all more sensible about kit than that. Every kayaker I've met (and heard the opinion of) on anything above grade 3 (where connection becomes more important) has said they like to feel the connection between the hands and paddle. you get great grip, and feel every twitch of the blade in your hand. sorry but the suggestion that people want to look cool despite freezing hands is rediculous
shaftfloat
shaftfloat - 5 months ago
@Travel to Paddle I always paddle with gloves and suspect people just want to look cool so they won't wear them. I'd rather have warm hands, additional grip from the gloves as they are rubber and grippy, and added protection from abrasion etc. Also protects from crushing injuries.

@Chris Hammer I think you've missed the point. Yes, there are other ways to test yourself. Memorizing a thousand digits of Pi! Walking across Africa! She chose THIS challenge, and to say that it's dumb is to discredit her skill and knowledge and judgment. I enjoy soloing rivers and rapids too, I understand the added element it gives and that cannot be replaced by freestyle or running the biggest waterfall. They are all separate challenges, let's just let this way better kayaker chose which ones she wants to go for
Chris Hammer
Chris Hammer - 7 months ago
@Travel to Paddle I'm not trying to take away from her skill or her intelligence but just the choice. simply paddling with another person is a huge safety plus and it's not like the other person is helping you get through the river. It's still a solo journey even with a team. In all sports people preach safety and with the evolution of kayak tricks and running waterfalls theres plenty in the sport to texst your skill... like play boating down this section with another person would be just as nerve racking and probably more enjoyable than running solo in a creeker.

Narly situation! She hooked herself onto her boat, pulled her sprayskirt and submerged. How did she unhook herself? Lucky to be alive, lucky you weren't still attached onto your boat, lucky the rapid ended soon after, lucky you still had al your gear and your paddle came even towards you. A lot of luck!

I got the feeling that, before she ended up in this situation, she felt a bit invincible. After, reality hit hard and gave back the feeling of being humble. Good lesson, stay humble, thats the right attitude to be on a river like this.

Glad you survived! I wouldn't dare.

There was nothing in this video that showed her attaching herself to her boat, having a sling and a caribiner handy to try and keep your boat close while you get out and something to help her actually get out is a long way from hooking herself to a boat. You can quite clearly see the other end is loose and not attached to her in any way.
Anyone who questions someone else's decision to do something solo obviously does not do anything solo.....

It appears so. Smart thrill seekers minimize risk, and smart kayakers don’t paddle alone in these conditions, period.

@shaftfloat As long as it's a decision they've made themselves i don't see how anyone has the right to tell them what kind of risk to put themselves in.

I'm not defending her , i'm defending her right to put herself in a dangerous situation as a challenge.
shaftfloat
shaftfloat - 5 months ago
@Moriarty Vivaldi why are you defending her? You would be just as challenged paddling with a group but would have the added safety factor of people to rescue you if something goes wrong. You should NEVER paddle alone is the rule among kayakers so it's weird she is promoting the opposite message here. It could inspire people to make bad decisions.

What an absolute legend she is. Glad she made it out alright. She's a pro and she may have made some mistakes, but we weren't on that river with her so it's impossible to make a call on what she saw or did not see when she scouted. Glad she made it. Pretty awesome!

As a class 5 paddler, I can tell you that it is not foolish. Most rivers like this are done by people who don’t know them. Nourishments used safe boating skills and entirely knew the risk and was willing to accept it.

Soundtracked
Soundtracked - 7 months ago
The point of the challenge was exactly that it is a river with remote areas, and she was solo. Also, when water levels are changing that quick, any scouting in terms of rock placements you've done doesn't really matter because it's a different river.

Wow, you are really brave! Maybe a little bit too brave... You said despite the struggle, it was worth it, but why? I almost lost my life in the wildernes hiking in Tanzania when I was 17. And I didn't know what I got myself into, the reason it got dangerous was to a large part my guide's fault (he forgot the headlamps, which were absolutely crucial). I'm just saying it's never worth to risk your life just for a few days of adventure. I respect your bravery and kayaking skills, but doing something like this is very reckless and irresponsible in ny opinion. Be careful guys! You can die faster than you think, I was REALLY close to death before I could understand it.
