Definitely a day to remember
Tree surfing - what can I say? It was a day I will never forget. I was with two 10 year olds and two 9 year old girls (including one who had a fear of heights). Needless to say, she completed the whole 5 courses along with the BIG swing.
We arrived 15 minutes before our time and got geared up. The actual Tree Surfing took us around 2 and a half hours. I'm sure others do it faster.
We did the basic training with the instructor where I joked with him about if we want to pull out mid course - it's not possible. But it is extremely safe.
The girls were like little monkeys, lithe and gliding across the platforms. For me personally it was fun and challenging - I couldn't pull out when a 9 year old was going through with a fear of heights.
I met young boys on there who were loving it and the adrenalin of it all. And there was a father and daughter bonding together over the fun of it all. I could see how proud he was of his daughter.
The final course was definitely the hardest. The trapeze was the most challenging of the lot and the BIG swing - where you launch yourself off a platform into a net - is something I did not dare to conquer, but all of the girls overcame their fear and did it anyway.
