I'm coming from Canada to work in Nelson for a couple months over the winter (April-June or July). How's the paddling this time of year, if any? Easy to hook up with other paddlers? How about renting gear? I'm thinking of bringing a drytop and a few other things, but won't have a boat or paddle. I usually paddle class III+ - IV.
Thanks for any help.
