Another Nevis

Exams over and done with, should have a degree on the way... where to go?! Silly question really, guranteed flows on the Nevis River, Kawarau always there and many more prospects if the rain comes. 13 hours after I finished my exams I had packed up my life and flew to Queenstown to meet up with Willzy and Simon D. After some celebratory nights I figured it about time to get down to business, Nevis was at 21cumec so it was all on. The crew was Willz, Simon D, Ben Robson and myself, here some of the pictures...

Myself throwing the dice at the double drop, the second hole got me good!

Not stiched, just Blue Angels... young bucks getting it done

Probably my favourite drop on the river!

Last but not least... Willzy

Ben and Willz discussing lines at lunch counter... Yeah Right

Another trip down this amazing river, making it three for the spring. Hopefully we can get it one more time before moving up to the West Coast to get one some on my favourite home runs. Watch this space.
