Backyard Snow Kayaking Goes As Well As You'd Expect

Posted: Updated:

This is why kayaking is probably best left as a summer activity.

On Tuesday, YouTuber Viva Frei decided to pull out his kayak and go for a ride in Quebec's Laurentian Mountains near Lac Megantic.

Unfortunately, he forgot to clear a stack of logs from his path.

Luckily there was plenty of soft snow to break his fall, much to the amusement of his kids.

Believe it or not, snow kayaking is an real extreme winter sport — while it's not allowed at most ski resorts.

In 2013 Red Bull held a snow kayaking competition in Estonia.

But based on this video, it might be a little while before Frei can compete among the pros.

Watch Frei try out "winter kayaking" above.
