Paddleboard Photo Shoot with Tourism PEI.
Paddleboarding has always been at the core of who we are as explorers on Prince Edward Island. Having the opportunity to share our passion and the amazing landscape Prince Edward Island has to offer was a dream come true for us.
Prince Edward Island is a paddleboarding and Kayaking lovers paradise. With endless water ways through twisty rivers into wide open ocean channels with surf able waves. The island is a must paddle for anyone who has never visited before. With over 10 years experience paddleboarding here on the island and in Summerside, we were thrilled to be chosen as paddleboarding ambassador for the PEI Tourism department.
The photo shoot took place during late August on the North Shore of PEI. We brought with us some experienced paddle boarders we had taught earlier in the season. Showcasing what they had learned with our paddlboarding experts they made excellent models highlighting the north shores beautiful backdrop. It was an amazing experience for all of us and one we will remember for a long time to come.
Looking forward to sharing our passion of Paddleboarding with you this summer!
Kiteboarding in Prince Edward Island.
It was a thrill to meet Rachel Moore, instagram guru and ambassador for Discover Canada. Her and her husband where travelling across Eastern Canada chasing adventure when! Rachel paid us a visit to dive into what it takes to become a Kiteboarder, and learn in the amazing conditions Prince Edward Island is home to.
Kiteboarding is a sport that concentrates first on control and properly fly of the kite, with some practice a first time flyer can be come comfortable within 1 or 2 hours of hands on time flying the kite. Our instructor start slowly building up the students confidence in flying by breaking down each maneuver into steps.
For example in kiteboarding the first step is to launch the kite from the ground into the air, This is first taught by having the student slowly pulling in the Kitesurfing bar causing tension to build in the sail and for it to gently lift of the ground then flop back down. Starting with these small steps will allow a student to build up to flying the kite with feeling and control in a safe manner.
Rachel was an excellent student and it was a blast watching her take her first flight with us. She finished her level 1 kiteboarding certificate and plans to continue developing her kitesurfing skills when she leaves Prince Edward Island.
See you again Rachel!
