Rodeos and Rights

despite being only 20 minutes outside Manzanillo we were a little surprised that there wasn’t an ambulance on hand or any medical officials for that matter. But hey, these guys are professionals…

Quite the cultural outing last weekend at the rodeo. On the way back from some coastal exploration we came across the festivities in a little pueblo outside of town. Full on ranchero party complete with chicken fights, drunken horse riding and of course, the bull riding. Got some serious stares being the only gringos there but once the cowboy hats went on we were just one of the crowd. Weather conditions were great but swell was a little lacking. Still managed to track down some nuggets…

light winds and a little south…

Before the rodeo all the riders drop knee and say a prayer. For some the prayers were sufficient prep. For others a few modelos helped
