Watch: 8-Year-Old Kayaker Drops Waterfalls in Mexico

Paddling super-kid, Malcolm Lee Smith, getting after it down south

Malcolm Lee Smith does things a little differently. The eight-year-old shredder runs rapids, surfs waves, and now he’s dropping waterfalls. This video, taken on a recent trip to Mexico, shows Smith running slides that would intimidate paddlers twice his age and styling it every time. Smith is the youngest member of Team Dagger, and if he keeps it up, he’ll be on their roster for many years to come. When Malcolm’s not on the water, you’ll find him mountain biking or riding his dirt bike. Oh yeah, and he also knows how to unicycle.
