Hang gliding should be on everyone’s bucket list. Think of it like flying a kite, except the kite is flying you! If you don’t like heights, this may not be your favourite sport, as hang gliding typically calls for the glider to leap from high places and soar in the air. That wasn’t the case for us, though… in Manitoba the land is very, very flat, so our duo had to be pulled by an ATV to get their glide on! Once in the air, the glider uses their body weight to steer into the direction they want to go, which is hopefully around trees and not through them!
Justin & Riley tried out prairie-style hang gliding with Barry at Adventure at Altitude!
Hard to believe there is a whole hang glider in there!
All geared up!
Lights, camera, flashes!!! In this Icebreaker, Darcy, Justin and Riley will be learning about studio photography with professional photographer David Lipnowski. They will learn how to properly set up lighting, work with models (A.K.A. Darcy), and how to best compose a professional looking shoot. Did you know that the reason people never smiled in old photos is because back in the day it took hours to expose one photo – so people had to stay perfectly still. Luckily for us, studio photography has majorly improved since then and our participants will be all smiles for this adventure!
Thanks to David for the photo session at Aspire Studios!
Riley gives it a "shot"... 🙂
There is always a lot of fun to be had behind the scenes on a TV show… here are just a couple of those moments from this episode – enjoy! 🙂
Portage & Main - the "windiest" corner in Canada!
Justin gave them bad-boy lessons... we think it worked!
Or did it...?
Great shot - thanks David!
Introduce your friends to the show !
RILEY is a 17-year-old Ojibwe football player and enthusiastic leader from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Riley is all about spreading positivity, and he loves putting a smile on other people’s faces, especially his little sister, Echo! Riley considers himself to be a family man, and makes sure to spend lots of time with his lil’ sis. A good leader has many idols and Riley is no exception. His idol is NFL quarterback Russell Wilson, whom he considers to be the most incredible football player! Riley wants to end high-school in a big way – by performing on his guitar at his school’s talent show. What would he perform? Something by David Bowie or Nirvana of course. Yes, this guy has great taste!
JUSTIN RAIN is a bad boy actor and tea lover from Prince Albert, SK. Double Black Bergamot Earl Grey Tea is his favourite! You may recognize him from his roles on Blackstone, Defiance, and Fear the Walking Dead as Crazy Dog. Justin is a super laid-back type of guy, but when it comes to odd numbers… he can’t even! Or, is it: he can ONLY even? Winning board games is just one of Justin’s many talents, another is photography – he never leaves home without his lens kit. If a zombie apocalypse were to ever break out, he’s that one friend that you would want close by, as he’s certified in combat choreography!
