This is my everyday training grounds on the Kaituna River in Okere Falls, New Zealand. The river is dam controlled so there is always water and it is truly spectacular. I have learned through interviewing a Maori elder to always ask the ancestors to be with me when I put on the river.

The waterfall always gets my heart beating no matter how many times I run it, and is the most unpredictable waterfall ever. Many a trashing have happened here, but when you stick it and go flying off it there is no better feeling in the world. Thank you Kaituna River for being such a magical place!
