Extreme Sports in New Zealand
A number of extreme sports are popular throughout New Zealand. Zorbing, for example, has participants rolling along a flat surface, on water or down a hill in a clear plastic sphere. New Zealand is also home to one of the largest commercial operators of bungee jumping in the world, AJ Hackett – who has also been credited by bringing the sport to the mainstream. Paragliding, hang-gliding and parachuting all allow you to float through the air. And, both salt water and fresh water kayaking is available, as well as calm and white waters. In this video, WatchMojo.com takes a look at some of New Zealand’s most exciting and extreme activities.
