A Small Hand in Rising to Greatness

Image
  Several months ago, I had the great pleasure of meeting Brayden while he was out walking his grandmother’s dog.     After many conversations I learned much about Braydon and his life.   I will try to summarize and bring to point on where we can all give Braydon a helping hand. From a very early age Braydon’s parents separated, and Braydon was with his mom.  His mom was a diabetic and back then living with Type 1 Diabetes.  It was very difficult to control and manage.  I say this out of experience as I do know the trails and tribulations Type 1 Diabetes can have on a family and one’s health.  I regress so let’s move forward.   Braydon’s Mother’s constant battle with Diabetes took its toll on her and eventually she was overwhelmed.  Braydon then went to live with his grandmother in Muskoka.  It was a good move/restart for Braydon as he was at school; learning and moving forward rapidly in his scholastics.  I can only imagine I would need a new start and new roots given what Braydon a

Moving forward, there was a simple reason why I can recollect t

  There are a few new laws coming down from Transport Canada that will affect many types of Powered Surfboards in the up-and-coming years. It is now illegal to pilot any open propeller driven surfboards in Canada, and gas-powered surfboards are becoming more under review. For specific information please see https://tc.canada.ca/en/marine-transportation/marine-safety/prohibition-propeller-driven-surfboard-type-vessels . I will try and summarize for you the new regulations: ·          If you have a gas-powered jet powered surfboard, you will now have to register it with Transportation Canada and provide the stickers on an easily seen surface on the board.   Please go to https://tc.canada.ca/en/search/site?key=registering%20gas%20powered%20surfboard ·          If you have / operate a hydrofoil or any open propeller type surfboard, you will be in violation of Transport Canada’s small boating laws and may be exposed to fines and or jail terms.   I could not find information on the

      Last Summer of  Covid  Restraints – We Hope     As the world starts to crawl out of isolation, the Northern Hemisphere opens up into one of the most favorite of seasons for most – Summer!!!   Oh; how I long for picnics, travelling to new places, seeing old friends, new experiences finding new friends, the water, camp fires, and the like.  With the seemingly decreasing of Covid Cases in the world, and freedoms on the rise, I can’t help but feel abnormally elevated and filled with wonder.     In some ways I feel like a cave man leaving the “cave” for the 1 st  time.  The world is filled with wonder and adventure; again.    As the season begins; we, at Create Your Wave, have been doing allot of work in product advancement in our cave.  As you see from our website, we have started a new Electric Powered Skateboard: The Apex.  There are many product aspects that will ensure product leadership in the up-and-coming years.  We have also made many advancements to the Maverick and will be
