Surf Day

It’s May and it’s officially surf season.  Next week is the Rip Curl Nationals and this weekend it’s the West Coast Triple Plank. Only on Vancouver Island can you triple plank – SURF, SKATE & SNOWBOARD – in one week-end.  Surfing is on Cox Beach, Skate boarding in Tofino and Snowboarding on Mt Washington.

The West Coast Triple Plank was created three years ago as a fun way to raise awareness and funds for the Central Westcoast Forest Society (CWFS), a registered charity for rainforest conservation and restoration.

Surfing was on the agenda today and we headed out to have a look. For once, I had the foresight to bring my camera and I hoped to get a few good shots. I had lots of opportunity.

There were serious surfers.

And there were those having serious fun wiping out.

Wipe out or no, old friends were always on shore.
