1. My last day of this Chile Season ('12-'13), I woke the boys up early and made the quick drive down to Lago Ranco, Chile home of the Rio Florin. We were lucky to get some summer rains that had all of our favorite creeks flowing in January. Accompanied by Isaac Levinson, and my younger brother Nate Garcia, we put-on one of the steepest runs in Chile. A huge land slide changed the last section of the gorge and gave us an uncomfortable sense of helplessness while scouting a new rapid. However, with only a few bumps along the way, we completed the entire river portageless in a few short hours. Enjoy our short edit from the day and get ready for the Full Episode dropping sometime soon...

  3. As good friend from Pucon and owner of Kayak Pucon, Rodrigo Tuschner would say, "dude you come to Chile, you gonna want to bring your balls and elbow pads, cuz you gunna be wet everday". Rodrigo is right. Chile provides some of the best whitewater in the world, and balls and elbow pads are a necessity. This past winter we spent 2 months in the amazing country of Chile. From Whitewater Gran Prix to substantial hucks we had a great time and paddled some amazing whitewater.

  4. 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!
