You know him as one of the several daredevils on the popular MTV show Jackass, and three movies of the same name: Bam Margera. Never one to back away from a challenge, his most recent feat involved riding a 100-foot waterfall to the bottom in a 2-person kayak. The stunt was completed with the help of expert kayaker Steve Fisher, but not through much more than physically being there and pumping Margera up to go over the edge. But definitely don’t try this at home, kids — even with all his years of, uh…”experience” in the world of jackassery, Bam ended up in the hospital for emergency surgery, as he injured his back and suffered a hernia in the process. And after all the stunts and self-inflicted pain for so many years now, Bam Margera claims this one was the gnarliest thing he’d ever done. We’re inclined to agree.
