Fancy an afternoon adrenaline rush? Watch this video of pro wakeboarder Nico von Lerchenfeld taking on Regent’s Canal. The German headed to London in August to show off his skills on the stretch of water between Mile End and Camden Town.
In the clip we see him bending backwards to squeeze under locks and doing jumps off both the locks and the side of the canal. In one heart-stopping moment we seem him drop several metres down to reach the water level in Camden as passers-by look on in astonishment. Gnarly.
Remember this video of the stuntmen riding Boris bikes across London’s rooftops?
