New Years in Mexico

Between my first two semesters as a Civil and Infrastructure Engineering student in Fairfax, VA I decided to meet up with Dylan McKinney and Ryan McAvoy in Mexico city and hop on a bus to Tlapacoyan in hopes of falling off some waterfalls. We were very lucky to arrive with near perfect water levels. There I would paddle 12 out of my 14 days in the muddy Mexican jungle. I was very excited being able to get 4 runs on Truchas, a 80 foot repel into a spectacular gorge where the only exit was running a 20 ft ski jump into a perfect 50 footer. I managed a couple runs on the Big Banana section and the Roadside sections of the Alsesecca as well as a run down the Upper Jalacingo. I was also incredibly stoked to accompany Dane Jackson in successfully falling off 60 ft Tomata One 7 times in one day, bringing my total tally up to 9 laps on Tomata during my 14 day stay in Mexico.

Though it was a relatively cold and rainy 2 weeks in Mexico, the East Coast crew definitely brought the heat. It was really exciting to be down there and paddle with the likes of Team Thunderdome and the DC crew as well as the Jackson Clan, a couple of Mexicans and a handful of random west coasters. It’s amazing to be supported in stepping up my C-1 waterfall running and creeking skills by all my friends, parents and sponsors. Each paddling trip gets me even more excited for the next one! But for now Enjoy this short edit I made of my trip to the not-so-steamy-but-very-moist rivers of Mexico!
