One man’s drainage ditch is another’s waterslide.

Just ask professional kayaker Benny Marr, who masterfully rode down such a ditch in Vancouver, British Columbia (sadly, without drinking a beer).

The video was posted on Reddit’s r/videos forum, where it’s collected more than 205,000 views since Thursday.
