      First time on my mates 14' C4 Waterman V1 Ocean racer board. Took a little to get use as its skinnier than any board I've used before (27.5" wide) but never fell in the whole session so I was happy about that. Beauty day on the river!

      Took me 55 minutes to paddle upstream and 26 minutes to paddle the same distance downstream. River was flowing fast!! Rough calculations have me at 4.7kmh upstream and 10.0kmh downstream.

      Dark, cold, rainy day today. Had the whole river to myself so I had an awesome paddle! Just me and the ducks..... The ducks were looking at me like I was a little crazy though for being out.

      First time in the Kaituna river and its only 5 minutes drive from my house. Been living here 2 years and only just remembered lol. Training for a 7km river race on 20 August, my first ever SUP race - have to get me a race board. This is on my 11' longboard surf so its a bit of a slog!
