American attempts huge jumps at stunning Siete Tazas rock pools in Chile
- The American and his trusted team set up a daunting run comprising seven waterfalls and seven jumps including breathtaking drops of seven and eight metres.
- Lafferty said: "It was a very crazy idea and very difficult to make. I think it was the most complicated place I had ever been."
- Lafferty and his team of climbers spent hours finding natural anchors such as rocks and trees to rig up the tow line that helped propel him down the incredible run.
- He revealed, "There is this huge glacier up in the mountains and when it melts it creates this beautiful formation of waterfalls that we can attempt some crazy stuff on."
- Steel mastered the drop of around seven metres, but could not land the final jump of around eight metres.
- He added, "The final jump was like dropping out of the sky. That feeling you get in a rollercoaster. I will come back hopefully in the next few years and conquer it."
- The 25-year-old went three days without amenities, facilities or even a phone signal.
- Lafferty was the first wakeboarder to land a wake to wake 1080 and a toeside backside 900 off a double up.
