In October, the crew banded together once again. This time we had our sights set on a tropical destination. You boys like MEXICO? After landing in Mexico city we were greeted by good friends, cheap tacos, and cervezas. We then loaded up Rafa's van and headed to the whitewater paradise of Tlapacoyan, Veracruz, Mexico. We paddled close to Tlapacoyan for a month, with a great trip to the Xico river. We paddled Big Banana, Truchas, Roadside, and Tomatas all sections of the Alseseca river. The upper and lower Rio Jalacingo also offered up some amazing paddling. After a month of amazing times, and quality agua blancas we returned home feeling Substantially stoked!

No pinchis is an expression in Mexico used when you see something great or amazing - the main goal behind this movie is just to show some of the great whitewater we have here in Mexico.
