The YMCA Strong Kids Megathon is this Saturday and Mike Brodie and his two sons Morgan, age 15, and Loklin, age 10, are busy preparing for H20’s FlowRider Competition, which is part of the Y’s Fundraiser to support local families in need.
As passionate and dedicated flow-boarders with nearly six months experience, the Brodie family drives from West Kelowna three to four times per week to practice their tricks and carves at H2O. Not only are they developing their core strength, balance, endurance, muscle mass and an arsenal of tricks in an extreme sport, Mike says they have grown closer as a family and have developed communication skills at the same time. This is due to the competitive yet supportive nature of the FlowRider culture, where in his words “everyone wants to see you succeed.”
Advanced riders helping and guiding more novice riders is a common sight at H20, where everyone’s goal is having fun and becoming a better rider. This is only one of the many reasons Mike brings his kids to the FlowRider each week. Socializing, teaching one-another and getting feedback at the ‘Flow’ brings people all ages and abilities together.
Come join Mike and his family at the H20 Adventure & Fitness Centre Saturday March 1st from 1-5pm for the Megathon FlowRider Competition. There will be tons of prizes, a live DJ courtesy of Airwaves Dj’s and musicians, snacks and fun for everyone!
