Riverboarding the DMZ – Jordan River, Israel

Riverboarding the DMZ – Jordan River, Northern Israel, 1st Descent from AfricanRiverRat on Vimeo.

Asaf Arad made the 1st Riverboard Descent of the Jordan River in Northern Israel – along the DMZ (De-Militarized Zone) close to the border with Syria.

Extremely low water levels required a special dam release (which made it possible to run, but still very low).
15km of a very fun, highly technical, creaky river.
