Exploring Mexico SUP style!

It’s hard to tell if the sport of whitewater SUP is growing or not.  I spend half the year in Mexico and for the past five years there have only been a handful of us paddling SUP.  Lately we have been exploring new runs with new equipment.  Brands like NRS, Glide SUP, Hala Gear and Corran SUP have been helping us pave the way for new and exciting warm water paddling.

Mexico has deep water Class 3, shallow sand bottom class 2 and even runnable waterfalls for those who want the most adrenaline.

We still spend a lot of time in our kayaks exploring class 4-5 stretches of the Santa Maria.  With the season coming to an end and water levels dropping, we are continuing the search for adventure in any type of watercraft we can find!

This season we have seen rain when its usually dry for months.  The rivers have been full much longer than usual.

Spring is here and the water is flowing in the U.S.  Soon it will be time to head home.  when the weather turns cold it will be time for the warm spring waters of mexico again.  More exploration and adventure.  Join us anytime!  Contact me:  Aaron@kayakhuasteca.com

See you on the river soon!

  • We’ve been making the rounds here in Mexico this year.  Water levels are on the low side so we have been using the SUP,s a lot this year.  After the Alseseca Race we went to the Rio Filobobos then down to Rio Actopan…and later everybodies favorite whitewater paradise  Rio Micos.

  • Exploring Mexico Standing Up!

    Every Christmas we make a pilgrimage to Mexico.   Its a time to see friends, family and decompress from the good ole USA.  Life is just a bit slower down south.  This year will be focused on Stand Up Paddling.  The kayaks are staying home and we are going in search of class III rivers and some Pacific Ocean swells.

    Our first stop will be in the state of Durango

    Canyon view

    Twenty kilometers of canyon lie before us.  One or two nights of camping and millions of stars to keep us company.

    The canyon is on the RAMSAR list of internationally important wetlands.  In the heart of the desert this river canyon has 1400 year old Montezuma Bald Cypress trees and over 200 species of birds.

    Stay tuned for more in the coming months.  Get ready for the new 2013 lineup of inflatable SUP boards from NRS.
