This is written from memory now some 2 years later. I went back through my NZ guidebook and am trying to recall all my runs on New Zealand rivers. I am pretty sure that this was the day that joined up with with the Hamilton paddling club who were in Murchison for the Buller Festival.

I was nervous about Granity Greek this day. It showed too because I set up with the most horrible line entering the rapid and ended up flipping right in the meat. I swam and lost a show trying to squeeze out of my tiny Bliss-Stick Flip Stick. I hated that boat after this day.

I did get some awesome surfing in down the river at this perfect glassy wave. I also got in with this Hamilton group who became my paddling partners for the next days.
