After an awesome time in Quebec it was time to come back to Mexico. My
destination was the lake of Tequesquitengo located about 2 hours from
Mexico City. Tequesquitengo is a lake located outside South Mexico City,
close to Cuernavaca. It is one of the 4 tourist destinations of the Spring
in Mexico. They got incredible nice weather all year long, super warm, the
lake is not that big so it gets super glassy in the mornings, and during the week
there is not many people.
From the lake we can see of the bigger volcano’s in Mexico, one of the
most active volcanos in the world. It’s name is Popocatépetl and is a hyperactive
volcano bringing lots of life to the area.
A vacation place for the local rich of Mexico, a lot of wake
boarding, and boat action goes down everywhere.
Tige in Mexico is super new “Promarine The Dealer” is super stoked and he
wants to sell a lot of boats… They realize the store is near
the beautiful lake in Valle de Bravo near Mexico City.
The organizations of this event was amazing. Lots of TV coverage, radio
announcements, and demo riding by the dealer so everyone was super happy.
The hotel where the event was is called, “The Master Club at Tequesquitengo. It is
a big place, has a great pool area, giant restaurant, and green fields making the
Wakesurfing in Mexico is super new, for the past 4 years
when me and my girlfriend came for the first time to this lake to hang out
with the Mexican Wakeboar Mafia Crew. But at that time nobody ever wakesurfed.
This time around me com coming back for there first wakesurf even, they just love it.
It was an honor to me to be their pro rider/judge and the inauguration of
the first event, The AWS in Mexico. Saturday the contest had a big ballon,
Indo board contest, Paddle Contest, and Clavados contest so everyone
have a blast.
Sunday we could relax and we start to celebrate my birthday with a BBQ
at the pool, DJ, amazing hamburgers and friends, as well was the celebration
of the organization first event, was awesome!
I am a morning person so everyday when the water was the most flat ever, I
got to ride, film with my GoPro. The lake there
is not big so many not boats, I could find amazing water everyday.
So a big thanks to the AWS, Tige Boats, Promarine, Tx Hotel, Ride for life, for the hospitality and fun.
