Flyboarding firefighters

Madison Erhardt

Kelowna's professional firefighters were hard at work – or rather play – on Okanagan Lake Friday afternoon.

About a dozen firefighters tried out some free flyboarding courtesy of Okanagan Flyboard as they had action photos taken for an upcoming firefighters calendar at the Manteo Resort docks. 

''It's actually not as hard as it looks, it was a blast,'' one of the firefighters said. 

Images from the event, staged as a thank you to those who protect the city, will be used in a calendar that will benefit the Kelowna Professional Firefighter's Charitable Society. The society supports several local charities.

Off-duty members volunteer at numerous fundraising events throughout the year.

We will making a calendar with pictures to raise money for their society," said Okanagan Flyboard owner Devon Spittle.

''If you're wondering the reason we chose firefighters it was because our first article with you I described flyboarding as 'hooking up a firehose to a seadoo.' I thought firefighters were a great fit. Saving lives with hoses and now having fun,'' he added.
