Sea Kayak Guide profile: Zac Norris


Zac Norris is back in Auckland after a stint living in the UK playing professional rugby. Zac returned home to New Zealand to purse his passion for the great New Zealand outdoors. Before he moved over to the UK he worked as a Jump Master at AJ Hackett Bungy in both Queenstown and Auckland. Although stimulated by this occupation, Zac wanted to pursue the career of outdoor adventure tour guide and had a particular interest in wanting to be a sea kayak guide.


He has studied in Dunedin where he gained a Diploma in Applied Sport and Exercise Leadership. He has also traveled around Europe and North America.


He lives a healthy and active lifestyle, loves the outdoors and being able to work in the environment makes him feel lucky.He is sport crazy and you will always find him outside either playing any sport under the sun or watching them on T.V.
