On Saturday we did the welcome reef section of the Shoalhaven at 1.85m (Hillview). At this level it was pushy and some parts were pretty sticky but so much fun! I did this run in a kayak (with a club) and probably would have portaged a couple of the beefier holes in a packraft (though most of the rapids have a drop pool so aren’t too dangerous) but this is my new favourite river. It is full of fun grade 3/4- rapids, plenty of boofing opportunities and not too much flat water! Makes me want one of the new low volume alpackas!
We will have a vid up soon, but PM if you would like some more info on the route. There are some pretty serious obstacles in the river, so not one to attempt on a whim.
I couldn’t post the pics here (too big), so chucked them up here:
All the best,
