Welcome to the forums and congrats on your new TI! I'm sure there are other owners from the White North (hopefully becoming more blue by now) who will chime in eventually. I would also encourage you to check out the Island Clubs. I don't see one in Kelowna yet, but you could check with your dealer about getting one going. The nearest ones now are in Fernie, Spokane, and Vancouver. Here's a link to more club information:http://www.hobiecat.com/hobie-island-club/
Enjoy your TI and be sure to share some photos.
