Media Advisory: Street Surfing on Ice: Oh! What Fun it is to Slide... All Year Long!

Introducing the launch of a great Canadian invention

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 1, 2008) - Be among the first in the know to discover the latest winter sports sensation... street surfing on ice. After taking Europe and the Southern US by storm, The Wave street surfing board is now available in Canada. Thanks to a completely new Canadian invention, enthusiasts will now be able to enjoy street surfing during the cold season simply by adding blades to The Wave.

Born from a marriage between surfboard and rollerblades and developed by martial arts masters, street surfing provides a sliding sensation beyond compare on asphalt and on ice. As anyone who's tried it will tell you, street surfing makes you feel at one with the board for total command of the situation at hand on the hills or flat out in wide open spaces.

The benefits of street surfing include such outstanding cardio that many schools have even started making it part of their physical education programs.

Sound too good to be true? Then check out The Wave for yourself and see why it will be the item of choice on everyone's wish list this Christmas. You'll also get the opportunity to see the blade that will make The Wave all the rage in wintertime too, as well as some street surfing pros to show you just how far you can go on the sports discovery of the year!
