Big Water

Paddled the "Roaring Meg" section of the Kawaru when I was down on the south island. It's a bit of an odd run; not much gradient but this big river is crammed into a little canyon (I think it was used in the Lord of the Rings trilogy), so you get these huge eddylines and little whirlies that try to throw your boat around. I'm not much for eddyline moves, so it was good practice. I met some cool people too, which always helps.
