That's why i gave up on surfing this area for a decade of barrels in Mainland Mex.....

lots of fond memories of Pascuales.....

the bottom video is Patoles, Dimas Sinaloa..... about 1 mile from an armed Sinaloa Cartel stronghold, complete with armed guerrillas, machine guns..... i once got into a jalapeno pepper eating contest with this bloke in the village one Saturday night.

i lost (don't ever do this).


*i wear a spring suit even in 84~86F water to avoid the dreaded kill shot blue bottle sting.....

Must see 'Uluwatu' footage on what they're callin' one of the biggest days evaar..... btw, the surf crew that discovered this spot back in the early 70's showed the world where the best waves are, then they dug in and eventually were caught up in a big, international drug sting..... someone turned the story into a docu-drama/surf movie hybrid thing.

this has gotta be the longest ride i've ever seen captured on film.

the 2nd video is another favorite indo spot called 'Impossibles.'
