Where I Live

live in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada.  Canada is the best place on Earth.  Canada is so beautiful and has a lot of different land forms like Prairie and the Rocky Mountain Range. I live in a small town by the name of Comox.  There are a lot of great things in Comox like…Image result for puntledge river  

The Puntledge River is one of my favorite places in the Comox Valley.  The river starts in the mountains and flows in to Comox Lake and the flows out of the lake and in to the ocean.  the river is home to many fish species like Pink, Chum, Spring, Coho and some rare Sockeye salmon.  Also trout like rainbow and Cutthroat.  I  love to go fishing at the river during the salmon run in fall.  I like to swim in the river in the summer.  I walk up the river and float down in the current.  I look for Crayfish and watch the salmon swim past me.

Another one of my favorite places is Mount Washington.  I like skiing there in the winter. Skiing is one of my favorite sports.  My mom and dad taught my how to ski as a young kid and my dream is to go to the Olympics in freestyle skiing.  My dad is a very good skier and so is my mom.  My dad can do back flips, front flips and go of big cliffs.  I can do tricks like 360’s And I want to try a front flip.

One of my favorite  things to do in the valley is mountain biking. There’s lots of places to mountain bike like Cumberland, Northeast Woods and Mount Washington me my brother and My Dad are the only people there mountain bike in our Family.  I also Mountain Bike at Mount Washington. They have a lot of fun trails.  My favorite trail in Cumberland is called Found Link.  It is smooth, fast and has a fun drop off.

The Ocean is a very important part of my life.  Lots of things My Family eat are from the ocean like Salmon, Halibut and Sable Fish.  I live on an Island so I am surrounded by Ocean.  My Dad has two boats for Commercial Fishing witch means he catches fish to sell.  We catch things like Prawns, Shrimp, Crab and salmon.  I also surf at a Beach near my house when its windy.

I am so lucky to live in the best place on Earth!

Brandon Semenuk

Brandon Semenuk is a professional mountain biker. He competes in big mountain bike competitions like Red Bull Rampage and Crankworks and the FMB (Freeride Mountain Bike) world mountain bike tour. Brandon is 26 years of age and six feet and one inch tall. He is very good at rally car racing and he has been sponsored for mountain biking since he was 7 years old. He is a pro at freeride, down hill and slopestyle but he started as a cross country rider when he was young.


Brandon uses the thinking trait to think about the speed he needs to hit jumps and how far he will go. If he goes too far he will over shoot the landing of the jump but if he doesn’t go far enough he will case (hit the back of the landing) the jump. Choosing the right line when mountain biking is very important because speed and endurance is on the line when racing.


Brandon is very industrious in mountain biking. He makes money and has a lot of fun mountain biking. He has a successful YouTube channel and has made a lot of great films about mountain biking and having fun doing cool things like street BMX riding. Brandon has a movie called Rad Company. It’s about him and his friends mountain biking and building jumps to ride.

Risk taking

Brandon Semenuk takes lots of risks when he is mountain biking like some of the Raw 100 second clips that are very professional looking descending down a crazy, slippery, dirty slope and big mountains. It must be scary going down huge drops and hitting huge jumps like Brandon does when he competes and free rides with his friends. Brandon took a big risk when he was 16 at Red Bull Rampage 2008 and he won. It was such a risk because of his young age.

I hope Brandon continues mountain biking, competing in big mountain competitions and be one of the worlds best mountain bikers.
