Well, if I may say so myself, Small World Adventures rocks! Despite a few days of heavy rain and a road-blocking landslide, we managed to paddle 7 out of 7 days with our Christmas crew.
While other kayakers resorted to dry land cross training, we found epic surf wave after epic surf wave, and managed to find a few creeks that still had a creeky feel to them. Small World’s knowledge, gained from 15 years of experience guiding in Ecuador, really pays off at times like these.
And, alas, the sun did come out! We had many glorious afternoons basking in the sun, while boating amazing whitewater both in the Quijos and Napo valleys.
And, their patience paid off–this is one of a few surf spots WITH eddies we found this day. Dan is ripping it up in his stylish black AllStar. I love this photo with the water flying off the bottom of this boat. Nice move Dan.
Thanks everyone for giving us an excellent week of paddling for Christmas. Extra thanks to Dan, Cindy and Stacey for giving me all their photos for this blog! Thanks for picking up my slack in the photo deparment. They turned out great!
I hope you are all skiing some powder for us now!
