RIDE FAST-FLOWING RAPIDS ON A BIG BUOYANT BOARD IN QUEENSTOWN
Get up-close and personal with whitewater and mighty rapids on our custom-made sledges. Master the river; be in control.
Sledge grade 2 and 3 whitewater on special river purpose boards. Sturdy, easy to hold on to, very buoyant and highly-manoeuvrable, the sledge keeps you slightly more above the water than bodyboards.
This is an action-packed adventure for true water lovers. We start our trip in a secret calm eddy after an introduction to the basic sledging techniques. Here you must perform the minimum skills required to experience this trip.
As we head to the main flow, hold on tight and feel the power of the river as adrenaline kicks in. Ride fast-flowing rapids, blast through waves, spin on giant whirlpools and try wicked rock jumps.
Finish the riverboarding trip in Queenstown with a relaxing float in the pristine water of the Kawarau River and taking time to look at the magnificent scenery.
Basic swimming skills are required by all participants. Skills needed are moving forward with a freestyle kick, turning and balancing.
Please let us know if you have any special requirements or medical conditions that may affect your participation
