coast trip 2010

once again me rach and the to ugly ducklings ( ryan hunt & ryan lucus) head from rotorua for the buller fest 2010. We had a sweet trip down doing sum sick gainers off a bridge we found in picton then into lake rotoiti at the head of the buller river.

buller fest was once again an amazing weekend of racing and partying, i got conned into going in a raft team for the nz raft team trials consisting of a time trial slalom and nasty 45minute head to head down a very low water run of the upper buller, we did end up winning which made all the hard work worth while.

The head to head boater x is always a really cool day with lots of people watching and partying the day away, i was really looking forward to defending my title as winner the last 2 years running but after a very long day came out 3rd after battling Sam for the lead and passing him then getting pushed onto the rock he and johan got past me but still stoked and a cool days racing.

Leaving the buller gorge and heading for the west coast is always a cool drive thinking of the sweet heli rides thanks to Bruce Dando and deep valleys filled with beautiful clear white water.
