Meet the Team
Andrew is the brains behind the operation. A very good Jetboat driver with over 30 years of experience . He has a positive spin on everything and always keen for a laugh
Brendon has over 30 years of Jetboating experience driving commercial jet boats. He also has raced in Jetboat Marathons and won 2 World Marathons and 2 New Zealand Marathons in his Class. So watch out when he gets too close to cliff faces because sometimes he still thinks he is in a race boat!
"The New Blood"
Chris is our youngest driver, too young, sometimes being questioned if he is old enough to drive a Jet boat. Yes, he is, at 22 years of age he has already got over 500 hours of commercial Jet boating under his belt and always manages to get good reviews somehow, not so good for the Boss and the Brat!
Neeta has years of experience of being a Sailing instructor , but being inland in Hanmer has resorted to being the Shore crew and Receptionist. However her main job is to keep the boys on their toes.
"The Brat's Boss"
"The New Recruits"
Aaliya,Aaryan Cameron and Max
Meet our new recruits , Aaliya, Aaryan and Max - the Dog. With a combined age of almost 17 years , they provide the much needed cuteness factor to the operation in exchange for Milk, Swimming lessons and Dog biscuits. They hope to be of much more use to the operation in about 10 years time.
