Anyone going to Xmas @ Kaituna, from South Island?


Hey, is anyone else wanting to go to the Xmas @ Kaituna freestyle event 19th December, but is from the South Island?
I'm keen to drive up, from Wanaka, and I want to paddle for a week round the North Island, then come back.
If anyone else would like to share a ride up, hook up for some rivers, or share a ride back, please let me know.
