Me and Pete have just returned from a two week trip to Israel running surf, whitewater and sea kayaking classes for Terra Santa Kayaks. The first few days were spent enjoying suprisingly good surf in nice warm water and sun. The guys getting to grips with bottom turns and diagonal runs.
I then moved north to the river Jordan for three days of white water coaching. A great river with the lower section being a fantastic continuous grade 3/4.
A few rest days were used to explore the country. A bit of a float in the dead sea, visit to Jerusalem and a night in the desert, all fantastic.
Thanks to Omer and Saggi and everyone at Terra Santa for all the houmous and for really looking after us.
