rock sliding

as new zealand is the capital of adrenaline things, it was only fitting that i slide head first down an inclined rock face on a buggy board. it's called rock sliding and you can only do it in the east cape area (about as far east as you can go in new zealand). the only thing i can compare it to is going head first down a hill on a crazy carpet, only it's water not snow. really really really fun.

and one of the good things about it is that now many ppl know about it. the guy who does the commercial run there just started about a week ago so it's not overrun yet. the trip went ahead even though i was the only person going there. to quote an over used phrase in the tourism industry in NZ, it was totally "off the beaten track".
