Canada is one of my favorite countries in the World. I hoped on a plane to Buffalo, Ny where I met up with fellow Dakine Team rider Sam Medysky. After boarder patrol stripped our car clean we where off to Sam's summer cottage near Sauble Beach on Lake Huron. Sam's place is sick, right on the beach, waist high kickers, and a trampoline in the back yard.
After a few good days of riding we hit up Sauble Beach for the 1st annual Sauble Kite Jam, put on by Sam's school Kiterider. The first day of competition kicked off with a slider jam behind a jet ski. We were split into 3 heats with the top 2 advancing to the 6 man final. We each got one warm up lap and three that counted per heat. In the end it came down to me and fellow Real Team Rider Brandon Scheid in a tie breaker heat where he was able to edge me out, leaving me with 2nd place. BCS cleaned up in 3rd completing the Real Team's sweep of the event.
After the event Sam and I took the up box to Oliphant and set it up in ankle deep water with a barrel bonk on a ladder. Definitely one of the most fun features I have ever hit.
