Countdown to the best Golden Rodeo Series EVER. WE have lots of SWAG to give AWAY! We are going to give away a FREE kayak expedition in Peru or Mexico courtesy of SierraRios, SierraRios: Kayak, Raft, and Protect Rivers in Mexico and Peru. Your choice! Serra Rios is an amazing nonprofit charitable organization. Check out some of the great work they do.
The purpose of SierraRios:
(1) To educate the public about river systems; (2) to study and document the geographical characteristics of each river; (3) to preserve the cultural lifestyles associated with free-flowing rivers; (4) to increase appreciation of beautiful rivers by promoting recreational use; (5) to help protect rivers from human-caused degradation.
The strategy of SierraRios:
(1) Educate the public about the rivers in Latin America through publication of articles, guidebooks, and a website; (2) recruit visitors to the Latin American rivers by offering reasonably-priced guided excursions; (3) explore and document all the rivers in Latin America; (4) provide resources/outfitting services for those exploring rivers on their own; (5) teach others how to run rivers in kayaks and/or rafts - particularly residents along rivers who might help guiding trips; (6) distribute information about planned dams and their consequences; (7) clean up the rivers through organized trash collection trips, educating locals about dumping garbage away from streams, and stopping illegal dumping by manufacturers.
STAY TUNED FOR MORE INFO..............................................................

The hole/ wave is really good right now. I don't do much beyond surfing and spinning, but those who do are pulling big tricks.

Bumping this to remind folks to hit this up tomorrow.

Not sure how many other juniors there will be, but Riley and Henry will put on a good show all by themselves.

This is community freestyle. Don't be shy- come enter or come watch.

As flows drop under a grand the course is much friendlier for beginners to run through as well.

See you out there.
