Episode 13. How to Become an Overnight Tubing Success with Rolf Kelly

MAY 30, 2023 EPISODE 13

In this episode, Tales from the Cripps goes tubing with Rolf Kelly. But you’re going to have to leave your foam cooler of beer at home for this tubing trip because when you’re hanging out with Rolf, there’s no such thing as taking it easy. If you’ve ever wondered how to prepare to tube a 100 ft waterfall in 10 years or less, you’re going to want to tune into this one.

Check out Metlako Falls in a tube as well some other beauties on Rolf’s vimeo channel.

See Eric Boomer’s report from Metlako Falls on the old The Range Life blog.
