Tom Thomas - Jet Boat Driver

Meet Tom. TT as we like to call him is the youngest commercial Jet Boater in Queenstown. From the classroom to the Kawarau he spins a sick yarn as well as those 360 spins all the way down the river. If he’s not immersed in all things jet boating, you’ll find him riding lines down the mountains. Be sure to book on to one of Tom’s trips, he’s a pretty good egg!
