Lower Rauma

After some good days of kayaking around the Sjoa area we are finally heading to the mecca of whitewateer in Norway, Voss. The rivers are bigger and pushier here. I got to run the lower Rauma today and it was full on, short section of 2 km. that has some amazing drops and slides! The lines are clear but hard sometimes.  enjoy some shots!

since I watched my first kayak videos I always wanted to see this place by myself and maybe ran it... well here I am 8 years later running Flemming's drop! photo: mathias fossum
