Pro-Kayaker Sets Inflatable Pool Toy Descent World Record on National Lobster Day

In honor of National Lobster Day tomorrow, Oregon local, Rafa Ortiz traded in his kayak for an inflatable pool toy in a one-of-a-kind waterfall send. Most people would consider running a perfectly good kayak off a 70-foot waterfall somewhat extreme. But for Rafa Ortiz, that’s just another day at the office. In fact, Ortiz has practically perfected the art of the waterfall send to where he’s now seeking out different variations of the same display of bravado.

Case in point — Ortiz’s recent ode to summer: Hopping on the back of an inflatable lobster-shaped pool toy and hucking himself headfirst off the 70-foot Outlet Falls waterfall in Washington State.

Full story will be live tomorrow morning at

The photos will be available at and attached.

Happy (almost) national lobster day!
