After a nice run down Geoffs Joy on Sunday me and Jason were keen to hit a creek after all the rain we had.
We got off to a nice early start the next day with a crew consisting of us, Phil, Sam, Jamie, and Ryan L. Once we got into the Kaimais we saw the Tuakopae was too low and that some farmers dont like kayakers...
So we planned on hitting the Waipapa and with an hour and a half (at least) driving all over the Kaimais searching for it we got to the put in to find that it was also a bit too low.
After that we just decided to hit the mangas/wairoa combo, which we knew would be flowing.
So about 4 hours after we left home we put on the Ngamuwahine and floated into the Mangakarengorengo. We had a sweet run down with four of us running the Little Huka/Abyss rapid. Sweet lines except Jamies deck popping but was all good.
Sam ran center line Mclarens which was pretty sweet even if he did go over the handle bars a little bit. After that four of us cruised down the Wairoa which was bigger than normal but not too much harder.
See Sam Suttons website for a write up and pictures.
Heres the vid from my Little Huka run:
