Thanksgiving Hucking

For Thanksgiving we went to our home run here in Pucon Chile, the well known Palguin. With a good crew of folks we ran the Upper and lower run... with a portage of the scary middle we ran like 2 weeks ago. While on the upper run Jared and I fired up the nasty portage once again...

Jared went first, plugging deep and pulling some sort of sick donkey-panam-spiderman flip off the 20 footer. I said what the F$%* and went right after him.... last time on this drop I tried to boof it big off the right wall and slammed into the left wall breaking my paddle. So I was going to adjust my line this time.... it was like plugging a huge soft marsh mellow!

Dropping into the crack of doom.

buried in the cold clearm of the Palguin.

After going deep I resurfaced fast and rolling going off the next 20 footer.

Then it felt as if I did a hail mary and landed buried deep in the explosions of boils. I went kinda deep again...

I then resurfaced downstream safe and sound stoked on my second run down this monster drop.

Yes please!!!! This drop is fun and that is the way to run it because you don't hit any rocks and it's soft. Hahaha this is also the day we shot some helmet footy so here is an edit from Demshitz jared.. enjoy that shit...
