  • Description
    Sledge the Grade 3 section of the mighty Kaituna River. Sledging, also known as Hydrospeed or Hydrospeeding – is the ultimate adrenalin action experience and sport. Surrounded by beautiful New Zealand native bush the Kaituna River runs through a steep sided canyon. You will be equipped with a padded wetsuit, booties, life jacket, helmet and fins for kicking, providing propulsion and steering. Your chest rests on the board and your arms are tucked neatly into grooves on each side of the board for good grip and control. The great thing about sledging is that you don't need any experience. Your instructor will coach and teach you all the skills required to become a complete white water sledger. They will guide you down the river taking the safest route, explaining how to read the river, manoeuvre your sledge and anticipate your next move. Remember - You are in control!! Round trip - door to door is approx 3-3½ hours.

    Booking and paying through adrenalin was quick and simple. I was able to turn up on the day, the organisers marked my name off, and the adventure began.
