I am looking for an instructor.

More details soon...

Hi Folks,

I am coming to NZ in September for about 6 months, from November I will be in the south Island.

20 years ago I had a good amount of white water experience in the Army and was on my way to becoming an instructor. Unfortunately that got cut short because of operations in Bosnia.
Since then I have done exclusively sea kayaking in the Caribbean.

Whilst I will be doing that in NZ too, I am looking to get some skills back on the whitewater and maybe even do some courses to give me official certifications.

I would love to find someone qualified with equipment who maybe has some time on their hands that could get me where I want to be.

If anyone knows someone please send me contact info.

I will also be doing some lake kayak fishing so any tips there would be great.

Thanks everyone.
