    Yep....that traveling race circuit (some freestyle I think) only gets as far as Penticton each year. I was talking with Mike who co-ordinates all that (trying to find riders for the BC 150 event). He wants to push the event further to the west coast....so we all need to get involved and make it happen!!

    BTW....does your brother ride? Just asking because I know in Penticton there is a freestyle guy (bottom of hull is a Canadian flag) that goes to the World's....apparently he's quite good.

    Cheers

    You should check out YouTube....LOADS of tricks on there.

    Search for MAD RICK or Ant Burgess. Rick make great little instructional videos....and Ant was the world amateur champ last year....and placed well in the pros too....not bad for 16 or 17 ;-)

    .....and I'd love someone to video me....I still have no idea if I'm really doing what I think I am

    cheers

    Get a hold of SideFX - he was organizing a way to get a course together - maybe a race or a yearly meet would be great!

    LOL - my 2 cents, but yeah, it would be awesome to have more events out here!

    to find a standup in BC is nearly impossible, if you want something post 1990 then you have to import from the US. but when you can't try or rent a standup, there are only a few fools including myself that will dish out 7000$ to try before they buy

    but there is a demand since most people i meet at the lakes had no idea they still made standups or assume they run 250cc engines! i highly doubt freestyle will catch on in bc which is a shame cause i rode from may to november with a $50 costco wetsuit for may and nov but everything in between was bare ass

    08 sxr 800. best money i ever spent. my seadoo now vacates a spot on my trailer, haven't riden it in 6 months

    Howdy, I just found this web site. Sorry for taking so long.
    I am the guy with the Canadian flag on the bottom of my ski. I used to practice in Penticton every weekend. As far as being pretty good.... well I did compete in Pro freestyle in Lake Havasu world finals for a few years.
    As Far as getting guys together to ride, it seems harder every day. It sounds like there will be an event on August long weekend in Kelowna included with the gravity games. If anyone wants to come out early or stay late I would deffinatly be in for some ridding.

    That boat sinking was something to see.
    that was a good event too bad it never happened again.
    BTW I didnt race, I only do freestyle. Racing is too hard. That is how I kind of got started, went around a bouy and ended up doing a log roll, walla freestyle.
