Kayaker Hal Monkman gets down the Ottawa River a little differently than usual in this fun edit

Longtime Ottawa River kayaker Hal Monkman switched it up and went for a rip down the Ottawa River in this fun edit. Watch him get serious air on well-known spots on this popular river, like McCoy's and Garburator. Monkman generally uses the jet ski for stakeout purposes. You can check out a recent expedition to surf massive waves in northern Manitoba Monkman was part of here.

Disclaimer: Like any motorized craft, jet skis should only be used by those who know what they are doing, and with due caution given to other river users.
