The Picton

I recently went down to Tasmania with Nick to attend the Lea Race. We spent a week down there paddling, the first couple of days were spent on the Picton River, a great play run an hour or so from Hobart.

11 year old Brad Bool taking his first big steps to paddling White Water. Learning Breaking In and Out and paddling his first rapid. A week later going on to paddle the “bottom” rapid at Pine Island, twice without a flip. Well done Brad!
