Bio


Bike & Packrafting Odyssey Adventure Film

3 adventurers, a film-maker and a photographer set off on a 6 day, 300km unsupported journey. By combining new bike-packing and pack-rafting technology, they link together white-water rivers and backcountry tracks through some of NZ’s underappreciated wilderness areas. To add to the drama, only months before a massive earthquake changes their plans and reveals opportunities to explore new landscapes.

The Waiau-toa Odyssey Has been awarded the Hiddleston/MacQueen Award for the Best NZ Made Film for the 2017 New Zealand Mountain Film Festival!

Packrafting New Zealand

A journey of discovery New Zealand's Ultimate Packrafting Adventure - Unique, Unparalleled & Thrilling. One day and Multi day Tours. Expedition x ltd is the Official New Zealand dealer for Alpacka Rafts

Alpacka Rafts

We built the first Alpacka Raft in a Chugiak, Alaska basement in the fall of 2000. All these years later we’re still designing and hand-building simple, tough packrafts with the best materials and techniques available. All of our boats are handmade in Mancos, Colorado by a small team of local craftsmen and women. Alpacka Rafts are artisan craft, from stem to stern. Each one has a little personality of its own.

Kayak HQ

Kayak HQ is a kayak store run by kayakers for kayakers. We love to paddle and most importantly we love to share our passion with others.  In store you can talk to staff who have run first descents on whitewater rivers, who have competed in races such as the Coast to Coast and who teach others to kayak.  We are a friendly bunch of people who are always keen to hear stories from the water.

 

Marmot

Marmot is an outdoor clothing and sporting goods company founded in 1974 as Marmot Mountain Works. The company was founded in Grand Junction, Colorado by local resident Tom Boyce and two University of California, Santa Cruz students, David Huntley and Eric Reynolds, who shared the common goal of making their own mountaineering equipment.
