Kiwi adventurer Graham Charles has updated his guide to the best of New Zealand Whitewater. New Zealand Whitewater 5 is now available to order, direct from Graham at http://www.grahamcharlesnz.com/. The revised and expanded fifth edition contains information on over 180 great kayaking runs from easy float trips to full-on hairball, unscoutable gorge waterfall runs.
Waikato Regional Council have introduced a Navigation Safety Bylaw that includes draconian and unworkable provisions that dramatically diminish whitewater access in the Waikato region.
Whitewater NZ submitted on the bylaw and presented at hearings in March 2013, but the WRC implemented the bylaw unchanged.
