Ben Brown is a true white water legend having travelled the world on many expeditions into unknown waters to drop falls where no paddler has gone before. A leader amongst his peers Ben is the most respected paddler in NZ and has dropped all the big falls of the country multiple times. In 2010 we gave him the option of doing any mission he wanted in NZ. Red Bull NZ would deploy a full production team, with helicopters, mini cams, and whole lot of energy drink! We were all fizzing at getting down to river level to see it first hand! We spent a bit of time getting to know Ben before he put his life on the line in the name of adrenalin and strategically paddled the massive death pits of the Grade 5 rapids.. NEVIS BLUFF! Here is how our time with Ben played out!
