  South Island Gallery / Whitewater / 2014-02 Kokatahi and Waitaha  


Awesome weekend on the west coast on the Waitaha and Kokatahi. Both are super-clean at the moment, it is great to be walking stuff because the holes are too big rather than because they sieve out! Paddlers: Chris, Chris, Andy, Mathias, and Florien. Both perfect meduim flows--Hokitika gauge was on 55 and Whataroa on 65.
