The first few adjectives that come to mind about paddling in Ecuador in 2012 include: high water, amazing surfing, great boaters, Harvey, really cool side trips, the Quijos Lodge, and smiles. Lots of smiles.

15-year Ecuador guide Craig finished up a day on the Quijos this year exclaiming that “this is hands-down the best surfing and boofing year we have ever had here!”

This year was a good balance between high water and knowing limits, choosing the right rivers given the conditions and having a great time wherever we were. That is where the smiles came in.  There is a complete lineup of photos for all the trips.  And following are some of our favorite shots:

We have a whole collection of photos for each trip of the season!  Check them out….
