 Topsport Kayaking offers boat hire to travelling athletes. We have a small number of Wildabout Shadows available for use. The Shadow is a stable composite kayak suitable for good novice or intermediate paddlers. It is 5.7 meters long and offers great speed and handling. The boat comes with a spray deck and air bags. It is also fitted with an onboard drink system picking up water directly from the river. Other gear can be arranged if required. Our hire also includes transport of the boat to and from the race.


Cost - $500.


Please contact us for availability.






Each year we have a limited number of spaces to transport other kayaks. Transport is from Christchurch. A Topsport staff member will deliver your boat to Mt White and then collect it from the Gorge Bridge after you have you finished the paddle section.


Cost- $150
