A Grande Prairie teen will be representing Canada at the World Flowboarding Championships this fall. St. Joe’s High School student Kade Cox competed in the first ever Canadian Flow Tour Championships 2016 in Edmonton which had the winner represent the country.
He says it’s been a passion of his since the 2day FM Flo Rider opened up at the Eastlink Centre.
“It was created for people who didn’t have ocean near them. So, it’s a sheet wave that shoots out water at around 40 to 50 kilometres an hour. You do tricks like you would see people doing on a skateboard kind of thing.”
Cox explains that at first people may think you need experience in skateboarding or snowboarding before trying but he started flowboarding without that under his belt.
The 17 year old practices at least 3 times a week and will be in Singapore this October for the competition.
