Meet the Crew
With over 30 years..and counting of parasailing experience from all over the world Captain Rich is MR PARASAILING.
Being the brains behind Flying Kiwi Parasail he moved to New Zealand from Hawaii in 1998.
Captain Rich worked alongside Maritime NZ to set up safety rules and regulations for the Parasailing industry within New Zealand and ALWAYS puts safety first.
No man quite wears the jandal like our kiwi boy Jonny. Jonny has been skippering our Parasail boats since 2004 and holds the un-official record as the best kite-surfer around. Having spread his down to earth vibe working on Parasail boats in New Jersey and St. Thomas he is now raising a family in the Beautiful Bay of Islands.
Jonny has a wicked sense of humour and cool calm demeanour that will settle your nerves with ease. Don’t be fooled if he calls himself “Murray”
Sales & Marketing Manager Jules
Jules is our wonderful sales & marketing girl and has an alluring ability to make everyone feel awesome.
Jules joined Flying Kiwi Parasail in 2006 and with her arrival coffee quickly became the companies biggest expense.
With enough caffeine to fuel a cruise liner on a hangover, Jules sales and marketing ability is second to none. With her loud laugh and tall legs and “swede ass” attitude you can’t miss her around town.
Crewman Elliot is our Sail-loving English fella. Elliot joined our team in 2019 and has completely fallen in love with New Zealand and the Bay of Islands.
When Elliot is not working onboard our boats you will find him (still on the water) racing in one of our local yacht races onboard his beloved yacht the “Icebreaker”.
