SURFS UP AND SO ARE THE STORMS

We’ve had many wind storms this winter so far! Hardly a sunny day to poke about. If your not into the rain,best to stay home with your book by the fire.

Tofino has become Canada’s hot spot for surfing! The best in the world flock to our small hamlet! One thing that’s very different here is the water temperature! To keep reasonably warm everybody wears a thick neoprene surf suit.

Only experienced surfers need apply during the winters storms!

The west coast is no stranger to large wind storms.In the last week we have had record breaking storms hit us hard.To prevent injuries local beaches have been closed during high tide events.

It has been said that the waves hitting the west coast are the largest ever recorded in history.
