Note the speed of the water, also the continuity of whitewater.
Seriously whats the worst that could happen?...........Well, you could crash the f*ckin van!

What the video doesnt tell you is that the air temp is roasting when the sun is out, well into the 20+, but the water is freezing cold, colder in france than Italy too. Think colder than Tuam cold...
