Serious Fun Riverboarding


Cheetas surfing rapid quenstown

The ultimate Riverboarding experience for the real thrill seeker.

Sep - May

Level 3


Challenge yourself to our top rush!

Bodyboard up to 12km of New Zealand's best white water tailored by the world`s best river guides.

Conquer grade 2-3 rapids and become King of the River, riding the rapids on a bodyboard. You’ll enjoy surfing standing waves, riding whirl pools and eddy lines as well as catching some underwater currents if you are brave enough.

The high volume Kawarau River bursts with adrenaline, and this trip will challenge your nerves from start to finish.

The bodyboards are light and highly maneuverable allowing you to be more active in the water.  It's the perfect choice for someone looking for the ultimate adventure.

After running the mighty white water, we enjoy some spectacular New Zealand scenery on a gentle river flow,  then stop  for a rock/cliff jump or 2. 

An experience not to be missed if you want to try something unique, exciting and that take you out of your comfort zone. One of Queenstown`s original activities operating since 1989.
