a disaster

Claire Del tedesco Sunday September 25, 2022

(Translated by Google) No control from Authentic on the feasibility at this time. Satisfied with the information from the service provider, not enough water from the non-existent rapids, only pebbles, a lot of handling of the heavy and unwieldy 2-seater kayak, a lot of shocks and exits to pull the kayak.

sporty if there is not much water

(Translated by Google) in low water, there are many rocks to avoid when possible. Transparent water (it seems that we can see the salmon...).
