Tuakopai Round 2

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.

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.
