The idea for getting a permanent (and legal) location sorted come from mates who enjoyed the buzz. They needed their own setup to avoid dodging authorities and making hasty retreats. A purpose built system that had a mix of free fall, cliff edge for ground rush and speed sensation was required. As there was no other structure or activity int he world like it, it meant designing and engineering everything from scratch and a lot of testing. What followed was a testament to kiwi ingenuity. Three years of hard labour later (they built everything by hand), all the parts were carried, wheel-barrowed and dragged from the car park by Hamish, Chris and their mates and mates of mates who were paid in beers. In the end over 1.5 tonnes of concrete and 1.2 tonnes of wire cable were moved by pure brute strength (and beer).
