I managed http://www.kiteforum.ca
even though it's mostly a french speaking forum by riders from Quebec, we often have bilingual discussions, English speaking riders in QC and sometimes from other provinces
We have currently almost 1300 registered members, probably twice more silent readers (from everywhere in Canada, France,...)
We get more than 6000 different uniques IP hits per month.
The forum is simple, efficient, with a video library and a chat box, and few banners.
I can easily setup up an Ontario, or other provinces sub-forums. Even better I could setup a MAIN page where you choose Ontario/QC/Maritimes/etc... and you have a full forum.
It would probably take very few hours over the weekend to implement this.
However to make a forum SUCCESSFUL, it needs (in the beginning) people to entertain the forum, bring others on the forum and moderate it. And it takes someone from Ontario who knows the local riders, so I cant do this
But I can provide the support and web site. Then I need someone already implicated on the kitesurf Ontario community to become the mod.
Of course, for this section, we'll have your Ontario shops banners or sponsors.
So far with the site sponsors profit, we all re-invested into marketing stuff like CAR and BOARD STICKERS, t-shirts, etc... I (and my partner) have real jobs for living
we don't make profit with the site
Since 2010, we have already given to members through draws, 2 kiteboards, 1 kite, 1 snowboard, lots of t-shirts, accessories, etc.. These draws are very fun.
If you think, it is worth it, don't hesitate to contact me on my email at
