Sledging - 1 person
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 and made of plastic.
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.
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.
Although any true adventure is not without an element of risk, we take our chosen profession as your caretakers and guardians for this adventure very seriously. We give total respect to the river at all times. White water sledging is a serious sport and adventure activity. Strict water safety procedures are observed.
