Rafting 2018

First rafting trip of the season! In England!

Rafting 2016

Busy busy busy! In 2016 I managed to raft in England, Scotland, Wales, Germany, Austria and on the Mighty Zambezi! Which sadly left almost no time left for surf, but means I still have hours worth of GoPro footage to edit over winter.

November 13: Devon, River Running & Surfing

A trip down to South Devon at the weekend. Paddled the Dart Loop and Upper Dart at scrape levels (0.44) and would love to try the upper with a few more inches of water in next time. I cracked my first boat on the Loop back in 2003! Then down to the South coast for some surprisingly warm surf!

Nene White Water Centre

The Nene White Water Course was the first pumped artificial course in the UK and currently uses a combination of rapid blocs and fibreglass bollards to create the features along the 300m course. It is the most “skate park” looking UK course, with sloped and moulded concrete in places rather than the more usual “angular” concrete work. It is very shallow! There are three pumps, each running at around 1 cumec. The water comes from the river but needs to be pumped back up to the top pool. Normal course operation is on 2 pumps, but it is possible to hire the course and pay for all 3 pumps to run. Casual paddling is available on Sunday afternoons and Tuesday evenings. Saturdays and Sundays see the course in use for rafting and tubing, with rescue training through the week.
