Yesterday the Discovery Channel Flyboard Episode aired and put all the action and drama from the Flyboard North American Championship front and center for the world to see. They follow the amazing journey of Pro Flyboarder Damone Rippy who ended up winning the first Pro Flyboarding competition ever held in North America.
I know that during Friday’s practice round when Damone had the fall and was a bit banged up some of us at the event were concerned with the way Discovery Channel got in Damone’s face and seemed overly interested in his potential injury but in seeing the final edit of the show I guess it only adds to the drama and received the appropriate amount of airtime.
H2RO congratulates not only Damone for representing our sport so well but all the other competitors who pushed the evolution of our sport forward and everyone who made the event possible, specifically Daniel Kaufman of Flyboard Canada who stepped up financially, emotionally, and physically to make it all happen.

The Redpath Waterfront Festival were incredible hosts and took the lead bringing the Flyboard phenomenon to record crowds showing us all in the Flyboard Family much love and support. Hopefully we’ll be back even bigger next year!
