We continue to build our club into one of the premier organizations in the National Brotherhoold of Skiers (NBS). Thrillseeker's vision is to create an outlet, to gather 'Thrillseekers' into an organization that would cater to non-traditional adventure. Our adventures have ranged from Bungee cord jumping, to jet skiing in the Hamptons, to Skiing in Austria, to scuba diving in the Florida Keys!! We are open for any type of adventure in which you may want to participate!
