In this episode, Derik Hyatt interviews Vice President of the Alberta River Surfing Association and Co-Founder of Surf Anywhere, Jacob Kelly Quinlan.  Tune in to hear them discuss the history of river surfing in Alberta, the Kananaskis River Wave, what it takes and how to build a river wave in your community, discovering river waves around the world, and much more!

Jacob Kelly Quinlan learned to surf in Australia.  However, upon his return home to Alberta, substitutes such as snowboarding, longboarding and SUP didn’t seem to scratch the itch; until he was introduced to river surfing on Calgary’s Tenth Street Wave!  River surfing soon took over his life, and for over a decade, he has traveled around the world growing the sport, competing, promoting safety, building new waves and fostering community around river waves.  He has introduced hundreds of people to river surfing by providing lessons and many more through his efforts as the Vice President of the Alberta River Surfing Association.  He played an integral role in fundraising for and building the world’s first government approved, community-built river wave in the Kananaskis.  In 2018, Jacob and friends began filming their expeditions.  Unsurfed Afghanistan is now released to the festival circuit and due for international release in 2021.

In this episode, Derik Hyatt interviews Owner and Head Instructor of Surf Culture Canada and Founder of Kitestock, Tim Blanchard.  These two Windsor-Essex County Natives discuss the power of Lake Erie; Tim forming a band named Sublime before the actual SoCal Reggae Dub band, Sublime; windsurfing; the history and development of Canadian kiting on the west coast and the Great Lakes; escaping the grips of US Border Patrol for posing a threat to Homeland Security by kiting on the Detroit River; Kitestock; foiling; snow kiting, wing surfing, kiting on a food tray, SUP, surfing and more!

Well-traveled waterman and Puce resident, Tim Blanchard started windsurfing in his early teens.  At 20 he traveled extensively, spending a year in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Costa Rica where he caught the surfing stoke. After University he moved to Victoria, BC and spent his summers training for competitive windsurfing in Hood River, OR (The Gorge) and Lake Nitnat.  He began his kiting journey in 1999 along with Ross Harrington (head designer of Ocean Rodeo) and the rest of the Victoria crew. His first kite was one of Ross’s hand made 8m four line kites.  He got in over a hundred sessions at Lake Nitnat during the summer of 2000, mastering his kiting skills, before moving back to Ontario to attend Teacher’s College.

Being years ahead of everyone else in the region with his polished skills and powerful riding style, he quickly became the poster child for Great Lakes high-performance kiteboarding.  During the spring of 2001 Tim took part in the first Internationally Certified Instructors Training Course taking place in Cape Hatteras, NC.  He has since trained 1000’s of students and several instructors over the past 20 years.  With over 25 years of water sports experience in the World’s Oceans and the Great Lakes, he can provide you with the proper skills and knowledge to safely get on board.  He was also the Great Lakes rider for the Naish North American Team from 2001-2006.  Due to work, instructional and family responsibilities he only competed a few times but was the “King of Great Lakes Big Air Champion” and placed second overall at the 2001 IIes de la Madeleine World Cup event.  His current day job as a high school science teacher, experience as a collegiate track and field athlete and crossfit athlete/trainer make him uniquely qualified to provide the best instructional experience in Canada.

Today, in its 20th year of operation, founded in 2000 by Tim, Canada’s first certified instructor, Surf Culture Canada has pioneered the sport in Southwestern Ontario and is committed to the continued promotion of kiteboarding and other wind and wave sports in the Great Lakes and Southern Ontario.  Surf Culture Canada has some of the most passionate and experienced instructors in the world and is also equipped with the latest equipment which makes learning faster, easier and more fun.  As Canada’s first kiteboarding school, with over 1000 lessons taught and 7000+ hours of combined lesson and riding time, Tim Blanchard is your kiteboarding authority in Ontario. 

The most experienced, the most respected, Tim Blanchard and Surf Culture Canada have been featured in: KiteBoarding Magazine, Kiteboarder Magazine, OLN, CBC Radio, Global TV, Intersections Magazine (Mazda), and local TV interviews.

In this episode, Derik Hyatt interviews Toronto musicians and surfers, Wayley and Kadeema guitarist, Tal Vaisman.  They discuss both their musical and surfing origins and influences, becoming Wayley, moving forward with Kadeema, the hospitality of the Toronto surfing scene and finally whether or not the music of Jack Johnson is considered cool or passe.

Born and raised in Toronto, Wayley blends Indie, Folk, and Pop, to create a full band sound and anthem-style sing-alongs similar to the likes of Vance Joy, The Lumineers, and George Ezra.  At age 18, Wayley moved to a small beach town on the east Coast of Australia called, Coogee.  This is where he developed a love and passion for surfing, which he draws a huge amount of inspiration from.  His lyrics explore subjects anywhere from heartbreak to self encouragement that are held together by catchy choruses and sounds bites that you won’t forget.  After moving back to his hometown of Toronto, Wayley released his first single off his forthcoming EP in May of 2020, which received high praise from the press. After signing with Paris based Publishing Company ORA, he released his newest single “Waiting for You” in August of 2020.

Tal Vaisman is a Toronto based producer, engineer, songwriter and professional guitar player.  He is an honorary graduate of the Metalworks Institute Audio Production/Engineering program and has worked with a multitude of both local and international musical acts over the years.  His musical work credits range from Canadian rock bands like Black Collar Union, Little Foot Long Foot, Sons Of Revelry, The Envy to Sway Clarke II under Island Records UK, Hammercult (under SPV Records Germany) and many more.  Tal has also worked with EDM and pop acts such as Shaun Frank, Automatic Toys and Twin City and X.Ari.  Some more recent credits include playing guitar for rising Country singer, Justin Tyler, and Canadian pop singer, Victoria Duffield, as well as production for Christee Palace, Julian Daniel and American teenage pop and American Idol contestant, Adem Dalipi.

Tal also contributes both as a songwriter and as a musical producer to Family Channel and Netflix shows such as The Next Step, Lost And Found and Orphan Black.

Tal has also composed music for various commercials for companies such as Mazda, Shoppers Drug Mart, Whirlpool, Nestle, Fiat and more.  In addition, Tal was the guitarist and one of two primary songwriters for the Ontario Rock band, Ascot Royals, with whom he toured Canada multiple times opening for bands like Big Wreck, Our Lady Peace and Matthew Good Band and many more.  They’re singles “New Skin”, “Best Is Yet To Come” and “Evil I Know” have received major airplay over rock radio stations as well as streaming platforms.  In 2017 they won the CASBY award for “Best New Act.”  These days Tal plays in a new Band called Kadeema with his long time musical partner Jimmy Chauveau.

For more information, visit Wayley online at www.wayleymusic.com and on both Facebook and Instagram at @wayleymusic.  Also, be sure to check out Tal Vaisman’s band, Kadeema, on Facebook and Instagram at @kadeemamusic.
