the globe for excitement, we found the ultimate extreme whitewater sport.
years ago, we stumbled across an extreme sport in Queenstown, New Zealand called
sledging. After talking it over, we ditched the world famous jet boat ride on
the the shotover river in Skipper Canyon for a sledging adventure with an outfitter
called Frogz have more fun.
Rodger and his crew led us down the Class IV rapids of the Kawarau river finishing
with the infamous Chinese Dogleg rapid. We liked it so much we hiked back up the
Gorge just to run Chinese Dogleg a second time. We were hooked! So grab RipBoard's
riverboard for an adventure sport that takes you right down to rapid level and
gives you all the control. We call it Whitewater at Face Level!
