This is a old post that was on my dead computer, from a run down the Tuakopai a few months back, never got around to posting it up. Enjoy!
Last week we had a couple of decent rain days and Ryan and myself decided we should go check some shit out so we mished over to the Kaimais and found sick water levels, with 170 cumecs down the Wairoa, we knew the upper runs were on!
We fired everything which was sick but a bit scary with just the two of us and not really any safety but all was well and we had a sick day out, bombing out a run of the Tuakopai in 1 1/2 hours (which was good because we put on at 3, gets dark at 5).
Enjoy the few very average pics.
My boat looking a little worse for wear after a rock fight in the first waterfall.
Spa falls from below.
Ryan firing Douglas falls, we both landed dead flat, fricking sore!
Me boofing a slide with a chunky hole in the bottom.
Pace, one of the funnest waterfalls you can run.

Well its been a pretty busy past week mishing it round the North Island catching up with mates in Welly and getting raucous in town then coming back up here only to head down to Taupo, pick up Matt Burton, and head on over to the Hawkes bay where there had been a ton of rain and Sam Roil had some creeks and possible first D's lined up for us.
At the put-in. What awaits us, who knows?
Sam on a tight little chute
Matt running a rapid I wouldnt really call a clean one. The line is more or less paddle over the seive then get your boat grabbed and pulled over the next part of the seive. Didnt work so well for me.
Sam running a rather difficult and sticky hole.
Shot for the mish boys, and thanks to Matt for the photos.
