Kayaking down a flooded river! Puesco river at insane flows ! (highest descent)

Kayaking down a flooded river! Puesco river at insane flows ! (highest descent)

After savage rainfall Evan Moore and myself decided to give the Rio Puesco a go. Highwater made this run super stout and scary but we could run everything besides the Tres Troncos rapid. Awesome day out in Pucon, Chile !

If you want someone to lead you on the Puesco check out Pucon Kayak Retreat’s Claro +PLUS trip NOV 16 – 22 https://puconkayakhostel.com/kayak-trips/390/3-open-spaces-claro-plus-rio-maipo-iii-to-iv/ . Great kayaks, leaders, and river.

    Those holes loved you Adrian, why were you fighting to get out; they would have striped you naked; OK then they would have killed you. I know how good a paddler you are and at times you were at your limit; that was one scary river and I was just watching. I would also like to give a big shout out Evan, I’m no relation, but to paddle that river in those conditions he’s a hero or an idiot, he got out at the egress so I’m thinking hero. .

    That moment you step over a 2" puddle to paddle a river at flood stages. Priceless
