History is being written.  It's Life vs. Business.  And it will be interesting times for the jetski industry.

It has been raining in Tairua for 2 weeks straight.  So it was a lucky thing to strike the weather so good on Saturday for the Wet n Wild weekend event.  This event is reasonably new on the annual calendar and coming along good now with quite a large turnout of jetski'...
