Mine Bay, Lake Taupo

Last week Luuka and I missioned in Taupo in the hopes of getting to paddle the Huka Falls on the Waikato River. We arrived at Canoe & Kayak Taupo and were told that the flow was too high. It was a stunning day so we grabbed some SUP boards and headed out on Lake Taupo (Acacia Bay) and cruised around to Mine Bay where there are some famous Maori carvings on the rocks. The Maori rock carvings are over 10meters high and are only accessible by boat, kayak or SUP! The carvings are the work of a master carver from the 1970s. They represent a visionary Maori navigator and recognise the Multi-cultural nature of New Zealand with some smaller features of Celtic design.
Thanks Canoe & Kayak Taupo for the boards! and Luuka for a rad day!
