Please help... I'm staying in Christchurch for a couple of weeks on business from Steamboat Springs, CO. I'm looking to do some playboating during the next two weekends (9/20 and 9/27).

Can anyone provide info on good, easily accessible playboating, whitewater parks or park-n-surf areas? I have all my gear but need to hire a playboat and paddle -- best bets for finding these near Chch?

I'm staying at the Y downtown. Have rental car.

Thanks, Dave
