Flyride & Flyboard
Sunshine Flyrides Incorporated is a vision of Philippe Hébert. Philippe is excited to bring his passion for active sport to the beautiful waters of the Sunshine Coast, British Columbia and is eager to share this passion with the Coast community, the lower mainland of British Columbia, and beyond.
Philippe developed a thirst for adrenaline at an early age growing up in a small town north of Quebec City, Quebec. He immersed himself in active sports such as motocross, hockey, sky-diving, skiing and water sports. As a young adult, Philippe trained and worked as an elevator technician – one of the most regulated occupations for safety within the construction industry. In short, he has worked, played and surrounded himself with energy and zeal all his life.
Buoyed by the emerging active sport trends on the Coast, such as mountain biking, kite surfing and climbing lounges to name a few, Philippe feels that the time is ripe to introduce this exhilarating watersport on the Sunshine Coast he now calls home. Primarily operating at one location – the more sheltered waters of PORPOISE BAY on the SECHELT INLET OR THE LOCATION OF YOUR CHOICE FOR GROUPS – Philippe will literally take you to new heights flyriding or flyboarding! But the beauty of Sunshine Flyrides is that it is mobile, and Philippe’s services and equipment can be made available just about anywhere there’s water: FOR CORPORATE EVENTS, BIRTHDAY PARTIES, FOR ENTERTAINING VISITORS, FOR FAMILY GATHERINGS, OR WHENEVER YOU WANT A UNIQUE AND FUN EXPERIENCE TO REMEMBER.
Philippe has been trained and certified through Alexandre Barreira of Flyboard Quebec for both Flyriding and Flyboarding. He will introduce enthusiasts of all ages and experience to these watersports, using his knowledge and expertise for whatever duration of session you choose. He will ensure that the session runs smoothly, helping you to develop a flying agility quicklyand attain a unique experience that you can remember.
