Looking for paddlers or information


we are kayakers from Czech Republic and we will work in Nelson until christmas.

I am looking for information about rivers nearby Nelson, Takaka or paddle partners for it. I can run grade 4+ (in Europe 4..5 but I don't know NZ's grade. I think it's lightly harder) and Susana grade 3. I would like paddle rivers in Takaka, but I need to have partners. For harder rivers Susan can do shuttle :)

Just now we live not far Wairoa which is dry :) I'll be happy for some information or contacts to kayakers :) I did unofficial first aid courses and river rescue courses. I have experiences from WW, rescue etc for five years. I am not beginner nor expert :)

Thank you
