I'm a kayaker from the UK and will be in NZ from feb-july 2011, working in Invercargill. I'm looking to do some paddling in my time off.
I have done plenty of grade 4 in the UK, Alps and Nepal and I'm planning to buy a second hand car and boat. What are the levels like at this time of year? What's the best way to meet local paddlers? Is there a local kayak club to join?
