Stand Up Puddleboarding in Tofino - Video:Markus Pukonen http://routesofchange.org/blog/
On the far forgotten reaches of the west coast of Vancouver Island lies a small town struggling to survive with the demise of the fishing and logging industries. A small group has emerged with the answer to the unfortunate question, how will Tofino survive.

JR Thanksgiving surf morning

Howdy CoastalBC community,
While digesting the wonderful Thanksgiving meal my brother's family prepared for us here in Victoria, I reflected on the usual morning of surf at JR. I wanted to share these pictures and thoughts as part of my giving thanks to our Vancouver Island surfing community.

I won't offer my any profound advice for anyone seeking nautical adventure as I am not experienced in such matters and may have made the same mistakes as these guys given the opportunity.

This accident reminded me that we are a tribe of water loving people. Fishermen, surfers (including sup, right?), kayakers, and other inhabitants of this land and sea are bound together, stewards of a precious resource. We have a responsibility to take care of this place we love and to care for those who share our bond with the sea. What I witnessed and was a part of this morning was a reminder of that. A special thanks to the leadership of the older surfer/sup'er who recognized early on that help was needed and galvanized action without being asked for help. In the end, nobody was injured and the environmental damage was minimized.

Happy Thanksgiving,
Zyoji Jackson
