MEET THE TEAM


Riverbug is our passion that we love to share.


We love our mahi (work), and supporting community and healthy lifestyles through enjoyment of the outdoors is at the heart of what we do. We run guide training and riverbug programmes for rangatahi (youth) and Riverbug activities for community groups under the guidance of riverbug pioneers Don (Ngāti Kahungunu), and Sabine (Germany). When you join us on the water you'll be helping us to help support our community.

“te tautoko ngātahi i te hapori“ supporting the community together

Safe Hands


Don and Sabine have been "Team Riverbug" since bringing the sport to Austria in 2007. Together they grounded riverbug tour and riverbug manufactur company riverbug.me and established a growing riverbug community in Europe and other countries around the world. They are the riverbug experts, and have developed Safe Operating Procedures and guide training programmes for riverbug operators.

With over 50 years of combined whitewater experience between them – you know you'll be in safe hands
