The Thrombi Xfest is one of South Africa’s prime white water kayaking events. It happened on 18 and 19 January this year.
Day one is the race, taking you through Tonsilitis, Slot Machine and the Infamous Supertube rapids. Day 2 is traditionally an extreme freewheel contest down the Thrombi waterfall.
The Trailblazer Guide was honoured with the opportunity to cover the event. Enjoy the Thrombi Xfest video (HD version available in a week or so):
We also have photos on our Facebook page – screen dumps from the video. Go browse through the albums!
Other cool people also had stories to tell about the festival. Check this out:
