MULTIPLICITY 2016: Rory Bushfield — Flying High into Low Tide

Professional skier and television personality Rory “Bushy” Bushfield began his versatile career as a moguls skier on the Canadian Alpine Ski Team. He quickly made a name for himself, winning several Gold medals and becoming a Junior World Champion.

A new emerging discipline called freeskiing was just taking hold, and ever the adventurer, Bushfield took to this new no-hold-barred, make-the-rules-up-as-you-go, style of skiing. He earned dozens of awards in the new discipline—including a Gold Medal at the 2002 Planet X Winter Games Freeskiing Championship, a sixth place finish in slopestyle at the US Freestyle Open, and was selected Powder Magazine’s “Most Man-Made Air” winner. Bushfield also has the distinction of being the first skier to successfully land a 1080 in Half-Pipe competition. In 2012, Bushfield joined X Games star Travis Pastrana’s global traveling Nitro Circus Live Tour. Based on Pastrana’s popular MTV series of the same name.

Today, as a pilot in the Sea-to-Sky corridor, Bushy has been exploring the coast in search for low tide beaches where he can land his fixed wing Cessna in search of epic surf spots.

 

About his presentation:
Rory has recently been piloting a small fixed- wing Cessna into some of the most pristine beaches in the world to surf their great waves with good friends. The adventures haven’t been easy: almost losing the plane, feeling hungry and stuck but not being to upset about it.

Bushfield will use his stories to explain the the dos and don’ts of plane surfing to inspire and impart knowledge in resourcefulness and free spirit as we explore and seek adventure in the and around the mountains and the ocean.
