Rafting Equipment and Tips

Rafting on the Nymboida River (or Nymbo as it’s known to river guides) is certain to entertain the complete novice as well as experienced white water warriors.

White water rafting is a rapidly growing sport. However, the potentially dangerous nature of the activity means that it isn’t usually something that participants do as individuals, nor is it common that people go out and buy their own raft. Instead, if you really fall in love with water rafting the best thing to do is to join a rafting club, where you can pursue your passion with like-minded people whilst sharing the expense of buying all the necessary gear.

When buying whitewater equipment remember to always do your research properly and seek advice from experts. There are plenty of online resources, rafting clubs and water sport retailers who can help you make informed choices.


Rafting Equipment


A lifevest, or Personal Flotation Device (PFD) is essential for anyone planning to pursue white water rafting (or any other water sport) regularly. Given the strenuous nature of rafting, you should have a heavy-duty lifejacket that can withstand the bumps and knocks that you could well experience, as well as keeping you afloat, should you fall out of your raft.
