The Quest to Quebec:
Poutine, Maple Syrup & Flowboarding! FLOW Tour hopped North of the border recently for the 2018 FlowRider® Canadian FLOW Tour Championships.
Village Vacances Valcartier, located about a half hour outside of Quebec City, has not only been one of North America’s most popular tourist and recreational destinations for over 50 years, it is now a must-visit location for flowboarders.
In 2016, Bora Parc, the indoor waterpark at Hotel Valcartier (they also have an outdoor waterpark facility), was completed with a FlowRider Double wave attraction as their key feature amongst all the other epic offerings on the property.
Less than two years later, they have stepped up to the plate and played host the FlowRider Canadian FLOW Tour Championships. The event weekend featured staff trainings, wave shows and of course the competition.
“We were very excited to have the flowboarders community onsite, and we understand the value of hosting these events.” Explains Florence Robertson, Event Coordinator for Hotel Valcartier & Bora Parc. “Hopeful to host more events like this in the future.” Roberston added.
With a great local turn out and several groups of riders making the trip from Kelowna, Montreal, Vermont and Pennsylvania, the event was great success and all parties involved look forward to next year!
“I followed the US FLOW Tour all season long,” says Eamonn Orr, traveling competitor from Scranton, Pennsylvania. “This trip to Quebec and the Valcartier venue tops to list of adventures I’ve had this year. I am very happy that I came here!” Orr added.
