About Ross:

I have been self-employed for the last 15 years involved in property and land development. I now own a small property investment company specialising in industrial Property. My real passion is for jet boating, in any sort of water, big, white or just plain skinny. I believe that in New Zealand we live in a paradise that is unparalleled elsewhere in the world. I enjoy taking my family out into the hills hunting, and also fishing off the West Coast beaches.


Keeping and encouraging access to New Zealand rivers for recreational Jet Boating, not only for this generation but future generations also. I believe this can be achieved through Jet Boating NZ membership.
