Hurricanes V’s Crusaders!

I've never really shared an interest to sit down and watch a sports game or go to a jam packed arena, to be a dot in the crowd. Other than Wimbledon and the Olympic Games, that's really as far as it goes. But spending nine months in New Zealand, I had to test the waters …

Skydiving- Seeking Adventure in New Zealand

  • Height: 13,000ft Skydive, 60 seconds of free-fall
  • Company: Skydiving Kiwi’s
  • Package: USB including photos and videos of my jump
  • Instructor: Lee (a very chilled but professional Kiwi)
  • Price: $360
  • Paperwork: Signing a declaration saying this extreme sport can cause major injuries and in some (very rare) cases.. death. (Never signed one of those before!)
