Wa-no-nah slayed the Clutha River (Nz’s largest and the world’s 15 largest by volume), but then the Clutha slayed us on Shitter’s Ditch – a 200 meter wave train of chest high waves…
It was pretty hilarious, especially when the cooler popped open and there I was – up to my eyeballs in the Clutha with a flipped canoe, lost paddle, bobbing beers – bananas – apples and ranges all around me – all traveling at a swift rather uncomfortabel pace. About 15 min/5km later Stevey-boy finally caught up and helped me tow the girl into the river bank….
All was inevitably salvaged save a few fruits which continued south to Cromwell – the fruit capital of NZ, one large organic beer, and an expensive pair of sun glasses. Touche Clutha – Touche
