I recently managed to get my hands on a copy of ‘The Ride’, an amazing book written about Jeremy Burfoot and Brad Burton trip around New Zealand on PWC’s, This trip took the boys 19 days and was an amazing adventure! I recommend it as a great read.
Modern day adventurers Jeremy Burfoot and Brad Burton push the boundaries of themselves and technology for a good cause, the Cancer Society, as they travel 4,000 kms and 400,000 waves circumnavigating New Zealand by Seedoo Personal Watercraft, something never done before.
It’s not often there’s the opportunity to combine a passion for Jetskiing, the challenge of adventure with a good cause such as raising funds for the Cancer Society. Jeremy Burfoot and Brad Burtonhave made it happen. Not only that, but they enrolled the support of principle sponsor Qantas Airwaysand supporting sponsors Kia, Sydenham Motor Group , Seadoo, Zephyr Technology and Here I Am to name a few to ensure the trip and fund raising was a success.
Leaving from Auckland’s Viaduct basin on Sunday 5th February they headed north to Russell, around Cape Reinga, down the west coast of both islands, around Stewart Island then back up the east coast until they arrived back in Auckland three weeks later on Monday 27th February. Along the way they passed some of New Zealand’s most beautiful scenic attractions and were challenged by some of the worlds most treacherous waters through Cook and Foveaux Straits.
