Larisa Morales is known as ‘the girl who walks on water’ thanks to her sublime skills as a wakeboarder and she jumped at the chance to work with acclaimed photographer Mauricio Ramos for an amazing new adventure called “The Inframundo Project”.

The two Mexicans travelled to the Yucatán Peninsula located in Southeast Mexico to explore cenotes, stunning cavernous lakes beneath ground level, with Morales wakeboarding inside.

Many consider the cenotes a sacred place, the gate towards a new dimension after death.

Nineteen-year-old Morales, who started the sport aged just six with her brother Héctor, has blazed a trail on the scene thanks to several years of top level competition.
