“Okay everyone come over to this ledge!” Jamie our instructor yelled. We walked over to the edge of the deck and put our hands into the middle to make a zip.
I was told to stand on the edge of the deck facing away from the drop. My heart was pounding, sweat was pouring down my face and I had a feeling of excitement and fear running through my veins.
Jamie told me to hook my arms together and fall backwards. It felt like I was falling for ages, were they going to catch me or not? Finally I felt the support of everyone hands. “Phew! I survived,” I thought. They lowered me down.
This activity pushed my boundaries more than any other, because I had to rely on people not equipment. I learnt that I can trust my classmates. I sort of trusted them before but now I completely trust them.
Whenua Iti was awesome, I want to do everything again.
