After deciding that Religion and Philosophy weren't for him, Henry Van Asch began a life in adventure sports. An avid skier, he set records in speed skiing, with a top speed of 194kph. He also represented New Zealand at the 1998 World Downhill Championships. Henry's interests expanded beyond skiing when he met A.J. Hackett, with whom he founded A.J. Hackett Bungy, the world's first bungy jumping company. He continues to manage the company today.
