Come and see why our reputation is just so good!
Topsport Kayaking runs guided trips through the Waimakariri Gorge from October through to February each year.
The aim of our guided trip is to introduce you to the Coast to Coast section of the Waimakariri River and help you identify safe effective lines on race day. This paddle is not a time trial; it is a guided educational trip. Our professional team will help you gain the confidence and skills you need to race in the Coast to Coast successfully. All our instructors are qualified and highly experienced. We have been working on this section of river teaching and training athletes for more than 27 years.

Weather and River Conditions
Weather and river conditions in the days leading up to and including the day of your trip are very influential. We have strict safety procedures and guidelines regarding weather forecasts and river levels. If the conditions on the day of your scheduled trip are outside these parameters we will be postponing the trip. We use the latest available information from a combination of weather and river data websites along with our experience to make their decision.
