  1. Re: “It’s beautiful — but dangerous”

    Couldn’t we all see this coming? While I’m sorry the guy got injured, I hope his suit is unsuccessful. It’s because of people like this that nothing extraordinary gets built here anymore.

    I think of what I would do in the same situation– a lawsuit would not be my first course of action. I would feel more personal responsibility for my injury.

  2. Agreed.

    The Simcoe wavedeck offers several routes ranging from kid’s-playground-worthy to virtually flat.

    This guy picked a more extreme route, saw the warnings, and still failed to take the appropriate care.

    Sorry you hurt yourself buddy, but we’re not all going to live in a Nerf city because of it.

  3. “Today I agree completely with Diane.”

    A sure sign that the End is Near.
