Matt Daly died on a kayaking trip on the Roaring Meg section of the Kawarau river on Waitangi weekend, 1998. This account was written by Sue Olaman and Carl Waddick, with help from Matt's family, in an effort to make sense of the tragedy, and so other paddlers can understand this can happen even to one of the best.
