Queenstown is the birth place of Riversurfing, and Serious Fun pioneered it back in 1989. In the summer of 1987, Jon Imhoof, a surfer from Hawaii, had to think up a surfing alternative after a short trip to Queenstown turned into a longer stay. He took his body board down to the Kawarau River and started surfing the rapids.
Two years later, in 1989, Serious Fun Riversurfing was born. Riversurfing has since become very popular around the world and is an iconic activity in Queenstown.
