He leaps! He flies!

Silly Stuff

Mangaweka Bungy - 1998
Nevis Bungy Jump

Nevis Bungy - 2008

After giving a presentation in Dunedin in September 2008, I headed off to Queenstown for a break. This was the longest jump (134 metres) that I have ever done and it was in the worst weather ever.

Shotover Jet

Shotover Jet - 2008

After giving a presentation in Dunedin in September 2008, I headed off to Queenstown for a break. The Shotover river provides a perfect location for the drivers of Shotover Jets to do their amazing turns. It was great fun and the driver's skills were impressive.

Zorb!

Zorb - 2008

We went on (or rather, in) the Zorb in January 2008. Basically it's a big inflatable ball with some water in the middle to stop you spinning so much (the water helps you float in the miidle of the ball as it spins rapidly outside).

Tandem Bungy Jump

Tandem Bungy - 1999

This was a tandem bungy jump in July of 1999 at Taupo...a great spot to do a jump, although it was the shortest drop of any of my jumps.

Fly By Wire

Fly By Wire - 1998

This was a birthday treat for myself in December of 1998 and took place at Paekakariki (near Wellington) in New Zealand. The Fly by Wire location was later washed out in a flood and never returned to the spot. You were basically hoisted up in the device you see and swung like a pendulum across the valley, with the large fan behind you used to try and control the swing, trying to get as much height and precise 180 degree turns as possible to ensure the best swing.
