You might think your silly pool floatie game is on point, but has it reached its full potential? Sure your float can hold 4 people; or comes with cupholders – but can it handle going over a waterfall? If not, hate to break it to you, but your float game will never be at the same level as Rafa Ortiz who took on a 70 foot waterfall in Washington state….while riding a lobster:

I don't think we need to tell you to not to try this at home – or at least if you're going to (which, don't), start small by training at like a friend's grotto pool, or maybe a water park. Check out more of Red Bull's extreme videos on their Youtube page, and get some ideas for extreme summer fun with these other 3 refreshingly crazy summer stunts – just make sure you wear a helmet.

1. Light Up Paddler

Now that you know what a lobster looks like going over a waterfall, you need to see how cool it looks when a rider covered in LED lights. You might not want to play it if you have any work at your job to do though. It's literally mesmerizing…can't…stop…watching…

2. 60ft. Waterfall Drop

Looking for amusement park style thrills that don't come with overpriced food? Just find a waterfall you can drop down with a kayak! Dane Jackson takes a dive into the La Tomata waterfall in Mexico. It might seem scary, but on a hot day, this probably looks like one of the most refreshing feelings in the world.

3. Desert Kayaking

And for our desert friends who feel like they can't enjoy the crazy twists and turns that come with kayaking – think again. Kayaker Eric Walter shows that even the desert can be a place for adrenaline junkies looking to paddle their way to thrills…just make sure you wear goggles. 

Bonus: Don't Forget Your Skis

In, not the best idea in the world, one skiier arrives to the ski park super early for the frost, but decides to take on the fall anyway; to predictive but still entertaining results.
