Red bull is a energy drink that was created in 1987 they are leader in extreme sports like Motorsports, skydiving and surfing. Red bull is known for making the coolest videos showing athletes doing the craziest stunts like a dirt biker doing a trick over two building or a surfer surfing a 100 foot wave and dropping from a helicopter. I honestly think that Red Bull is one of the best companies in world and also Red Bull is the only energy drink that I like to drink.

Pascuales

This week I’m going to talk about the beach of Pascuales that is located in my home state of Colima in the town of Tecoman. It is a wonderful beach to visit if your looking for a cheap vacation and great food. All though, you can’t really swim on that particular beach do to the fact of really strong tides, but you can drive 30 minutes to the Manzanillo. There, you can enjoy the beach and have a splash in the ocean water. Pascuales is known for having big waves year round, making it attracting to a lot of pro surfers from Hawaii such as, Jamie O’Brien, Bruce Irons, and, from the movie Soul Surfer, Bethany Hamilton.

Here is a video for you to have view of Pascuales, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OstZsZtmEE . If the link doesn’t work the video is called GIANT BARRELS ARRIVE| MEXICO PT. 3 by Jamie O’Brien.
