    Default Canadian freestyle

    Hey All,

    Well after about 6 years of riding I still have yet to see any freestyle events in Canada. Am I missing them? Do they exist?

    Is anyone interested in organizing something? an event? a full fledged freestyle association? anything?

    It just strikes me as VERY odd that just about every other water sport you can think of is popular in Canada (we have lots of lakes and ocean front) except PWC riding (and even less stand-up freestyle riding).

    I know here on the west coast there is quite a bit of freestyle/freeriding just across the border in Washington....but in Vancouver and Victoria (on an island no less) it's pretty damn sleepy.

    OK...my rant is over

    Cheers

    Thanks for the links Jay

    I just wish it was more of a national thing (or to be selfish....at least more activity on the west coast).

    Cheers

    these rides are organised by riders for riders and are not sanctioned events nor competitive, just a collection of guys getting together to ride and talk ski

    there are a number of other rides that happen in ontario with a few less people on a regular basis too

    so if you guys want an event out west put one together, there are a few more riders on the x from over that way too

    Ontario probably has more due to the, usually, great hot summer weather they get... that would be my guess.

    BC would have more outdoorsy type people, but i think that most of them would be hikers, walkers and so on that don't like to see 'gas powered machines destroy nature' or something.

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

    Yep....that's all probably true...of course the BC interior gets pretty toasty ;-)

    ...and I 2nd the "enviro" factor. When I first started riding I asked if anyone knew of any jet ski riders on an island forum for surfers and windsurfers. Well the 1st reply was a surfer that went up one side of me and down another about how evil my ski was and how he didn't ever want to see it where he surfs. I politely told him I had no intention of riding where he surfs....just looking for riding partners. Then to get my point across I asked how much gas his toaster van used to gett him to his favourite beach. Then his buddies jumped all over him for being an idiot...hehe.

    Oh well...I'll keep riding!!

    Cheers
