Frogz- River Sledging
Location: Queenstown-Shotover River, New ZealandA day off... what to do? We took in another local adventure activity, called river sledging. It is like white water rafting on a boogie board. We sledged down grade 3 and 4 rapids on nothing but a chunk of plastic. Comparable to being chucked in a washing machine on spin cycle... GOOD TIMES!!
Let the games begin... River Sledging.
"Frogz have more fun"... we were recommended to this company by some fellow Canadians.
Cally carrying her 8 Kg sledge!
We were compared to a family of ducks... always follow Mama duck!
This is Papa duck taking a rapid head on!
Notice the green helmet on top of the orange one... the orange one is Cally!
The second go-round down the river we got to travel together!
We both got our asses handed to us by rapids... we didn't stand a chance!
Doing a little cliff jumping on the side! We both jumped from a height of 5 meters or so.
Time to rest the legs... floating down the river was quite relaxing after the rapids!
We got the hang of it by the second trip... head of the class!
Quite chilly getting out of the wet suits... but well worth it all!
