Chris Eastabrook on the Sefrou

A bunch of us are just back from a short trip to Morocco to sample some of the incredible scenery, famously hospitable people, amazing food, and of course the whitewater that the country has to offer.

Chris has stayed out there for another couple of weeks and the last we heard, was headed for the Dades Gorges in a bus, so keep your eyes peeled for an update from him in a week or so…
