Forge Motion Pictures and NRS have done it again.

01.08.2013

Back in the 1970′s, the idea of running waterfalls appeared to many as a reckless and self-destructive stunt of the sensation-crazed. But to those who partake of the forbidden fruit (and to those who write about it), hucking waterfalls had become the ultimate in river running.

In New York City, Santa Claus has two big days a year: Christmas and SantaCon. Mindful of the impact of their growing event, this year the SantaCon organizers offered only a loose, suggested route while encouraging attendees to follow their own path around the city.
