Recently the Alberta Canoe Slalom Team headed off to Mexico for a training camp. The SaskWhitewater Team is pretty sure all they really do is sit around on the beach and tell us they train!! On one of the last days in Mexico they decided to go run a pool-drop river run they had heard about. When they arrived they found that it had been flooded out and were unable to paddle the run. At the put-in they found some local paddlers who had decided to run the waterfall before the run starts. This seemed like a good oppotunity to run a pretty safe looking waterfall so a couple of the top guys, Connor Curson and Paul Manning-Hunter, decided to do it as well. Check out the video below to find out the rest. Check out for more pictures and stories about the Alberta Canoe Slalom Team  Mexico trip.
