A great event and a great edit from the 2016 Wairoa extreme race.

Wairoa Extreme Race 2016

Every year on the Wairoa River out of Tauranga the kayaking community gathers for one of New Zealand’s best extreme kayak races. The head to head is an exciting race format where racers are seeded against each other till one athlete is crowned the winner. This year saw Jen Chrimes beat Toni George in the womens final and Jamie Sutton take down Kenny Mutton for the mens title.

Check out this highlights video for action from the race.
