Looking for paddlers in the south of the north island


Looking to paddle this weekend. I'm currently in hawks bay and heading to Wellington Friday afternoon. However super keen to paddle if I can find someone to paddle with. I'm completely open to any type of run if it be class two or a full day of creeking. I'm just happy to get out for a days paddle. Some maybe the rangitikei or hutt gorge but open to ideas.

Many thanks in advance Will
