Lower Micos SUP.. Stand Up Paddling

Published by under Mexico Whitewater

The lower Micos is a gem of a run here in the Huasteca region of Mexico.  It is often overlooked, much like the Lower gauley, because of the 7 waterfalls upstream.  The run is an amazing class 2-3 section with about 25 rapids.  Since river SUP came on the scene, it has given us a new means to enjoy these easy sections of river.


There is a very nice hole about half way through the run.  it is a class 3 hydraulic with an island next to it.


You can run this drop multiple times.  right now with high levels it takes 1.5 hours to finish the run.


we are using the RapidFire SUP by Imagine Eco

Last week in WV. Gotta get the SUP on! Upper Gauley Style.

Published by under Uncategorized

The Gauley River has some amazing green waves.  These waves are perfect for Stand Up Paddling.  Below are some shots of the Swimmers rapid just below Masons branch take out.


There was some raft traffic…




I had some 8 to 10 minute rides.  The wave is so glassy and smooth.


And the coffin made an appearance.  If you ever get the chance to surf here, I reccomend it.  We paddled to the wave and were able to attain back to the put in.



Thats it for now..I’ll have a new post from the New River Gorge In the next day or so.

See you on the river.
