  • Description


    I do lots of wakeboarding and water sports and activities that are better when done with friends and I'd like to YouTube and document more of our adventures. I'm happy to teach wakeboarding, surfing, kayaking and so much more so don't worry if you do not have previous experience. We are looking for a few workawayers to hang out for the summer and help with languages as well as participate in adventures and possible YouTubing.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our workawayers will be able to learn and practice a variety of water sports and live right on the edge of the historic Ottawa River. We occasionally visit nearby tourist spots like Chutes Coulonge where you can learn about history of the region and logging industry while ziplining through a canyon.

  • Help


    The help we like from our travelers would be just with cooking (just for each other) and maybe some language practice as I'm trying to learn French and Spanish.
    A bonus would be if workawayer can video edit or even just help find good music to use in videos I hope to make of various adventures.
