Whitewater NZ Access Officer Matt Bennett has been following up on the Aratiatia situation and provides the following update:
Last month a group of kayakers including Ben Brown and other Red Bull athletes were unable to kayak at Aratiatia. The group initially paddled the lower section of the Aratiatia rapids on the Waikato River. It was a warm up run and their intention was to scout the full rapid and paddle it on the next release.
