I can’t say that the Canadian boat-surf trip is the new Indonesian boat trip, because of, you know, the massive temperature difference of the water of some 30 degrees or more. BUT those waves sure are ‘purty, and likely comparable with those in the warm and pleasant Oceania.
This new movie presented by SURFER really shows just how beautiful — and just how good — surfing Canada’s west coast really is. SURFER wrote in the video’s description,
Last week we teased Canadian filmmaker Nate Laverty’s new surf movie, “Transition 2”, with a snowy section from the film. Filled with hi-fi surfing in frigid temps, it was an impressive look at how far wetsuits (and surfers) have come in sub-40 degree water. But it wasn’t exactly a welcoming scene for most of us fair-weather surfers. This section, on the other hand, is a striking look at the surf and landscapes along Canada’s Vancouver Island, and it’ll inspire a surf trip north — whenever that becomes possible again.
“I love the variety we get on the west coast of Canada,” says Pete Devries in the clip playing above, who’s seen on the Canadian equivalent of the Indo boat trip alongside venturing Noah Cohen, Noah Wegrich and more. “We have some really quality waves when they happen. They’re fickle, they’re remote, but when you luck into one of those days, you can score incredible waves with no-one else around.” Click play to watch Devries and crew bounce between slabs by boat, surrounded by some of the most awe-inspiring scenery in the world.
