Rotorua Sledging / Riverboarding / Hydrospeeding Specialists

 
Kaitiaki Adventures present Sledging, also known as Hydrospeed or Hydrospeeding - the ultimate adrenaline action experience and sport.

In the late 70's some keen Frenchmen were lying on bags full of life jackets and polystyrene, floating down stream. In 1981 the first water sledge was built (hydrospeed or hydrospeeding) it's now a professional sport in Europe and gaining popularity around the world including New Zealand.

The attraction of white water sledging is that you are in control - propelled by the flippers on you feet. The sledges are river purpose designed CRAFT.


 

You are 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 inside for good grip and control. The great thing about sledging is that you don't need any experience.
