|Home >> About BoatingKelowna.com|
The BoatingKelowna.com website was developed by passionate boater and outdoor enthusiast, Kit Crowe.
Kit lived in Vancouver, BC as a youth, but his family had fallen in love with the Okanagan in the 1950s and purchased a lakefront vacation property there. Summer holidays were spent largely on or in the water, boating, waterskiing, sailing, fishing and swimming.
Kit’s grandfather built him his first sailboat when he was just eight years old; he’s enjoyed sailing ever since. Kit has sailed throughout Hawaii and crossed the Pacific Ocean back in 1980. To this day, he savours his boating time spent on the water with family and friends.
Kit’s father had a passion for boats which rubbed off on the boy. As a youth, one of Kit’s first summer employers was a local Kelowna marine dealership. Kit continues to this day to work in industries that fuel his passion for life and the outdoors, including sporting goods (both wholesale and retail), and the marine business.
Kit is an NCCP (National Coaching Certification Program) Level 2 waterskiing, wakeboarding and wakesurfing coach, as well as an NCCP Level 1 downhill skiing coach.
Kit is the GM of Hyperactive Watersports in Kelowna selling the Tige tow boat line, and a fully stocked Pro Shop.
Through Boatingkelowna.com, Kit wishes to enhance readers’ familiarity with Lake Okanagan, better enabling them to enjoy all that it has to offer!
