          Not much you can do with a canoe, so there was a lot of repetition.
          Unusual? Yes
          Ridiculous? No
          Entertaining? To each their own.

          The last time I canoed was back when I was a boy scout.

              This is the worse sport ever. I ahve seen a video of it before but can not find one right now. Here is a link to the site.

                  The deafening roar of the crowd, flying beer and no safety gear was too much for me.

                    I've never seen it before, but I have tried canoeing and once succeeded in dumping my Dad in the lake because I didn't know how to get us off a rock. I bet this guy would have known how to do that!

                    It reminds me of the first time I went to a horse show. Didn't look like that much to me-- horses walking, trotting, around a ring. My friend who was involved told me that they had to control such things as which foot the horse stepped out on first, how close the horse came to other horses and synchronized with them, etc.-- all far too subtle for me to appreciate.

                    Or ice skating-- how some of the most demanding exercises look boring, because they have to do with which edge of the skate you're on. ("Which edge? They only HAVE one blade?")

                    What I notice about this is that with a minimum of movement, this man is controlling his canoe in space and in time (coordinated with the music) and that he gets that edge RIGHT down to the water without swamping himself or jerking around. My guess is, it is the subtleties of the activity that that raucous crowd is trying to catch on all their cameras.

                    I liked his vest!

                      Yep, imagine cheating death so many times living on the edge like that. A tip over was certainly possible, probably why so few remain in the sport.

                          +1. I spend quite a bit of time each summer in a canoe and can see an incredible amount of control, balance, and efficiency in the movements.

                          Having said that, making it a competitive "sport" is pretty ridiculous.
