December 28, 2013 – A group of world-class kayakers decided to head to the Rio Fuy with one thing on their minds…THE PUMA! To this day Salto de la Puma is still the tallest waterfall ever run in Chile. Accurately measured, the drop is around 35-36 meters tall (110-115 feet) This combined with its difficult entry and dangerous landing zone makes The Puma one of the most technical waterfalls in the world. With the 2nd descent going down just 10 days earlier by a young German paddler…The time was now. With the right level, group, and experience, Evan Garcia stepped up for the third descent…This is the story.
