Here is a video from our trip to the Zambezi river. The most amazing piece of white water i've been lucky to paddle. It's the best white water playground on earth, with great freestyle, big lines and awesome rafting.
Tree Trunk Gorge on the Tongariro River, just South of Taupo off the Desert road in New Zealand is a Unique place. To enter the gorge a crux rapid with a huge tree has to be paddled or a 6 meter seal launch lands you right above the first 40 footer. Straight following that is another 8meter drop to exit the gorge.
With every year that passes more and more people are traveling to the Veracruz region of Mexico to paddle the Rio Alseseca. In this episode Currents explores the history of what made this one of the most unique rivers in the world for whitewater kayaking, those who worked to open the river and those who are working to maintain it.
