Just got back from a great weekend surfing in Tofino. Clear skies and great waves on Friday and Saturday. Following our afternoon session on Friday we went down to the beach and took some photos of the locals enjoying a few last turns as the sun was setting.

Hollow Wood Surfboards by Cory Millard - Chinook Surfboards
 
Thought I would send you some shots to represent the Haida Gwaii again.
Got another hollow wood surfboard comming out of the shop this weekend, a 6' 2" x 23" x 3" Retro Fish, Twin Fin, single to double concave bottom contour. Made with local Red and Yellow Cedar and salvaged California Redwood.
Been testing other designs with a few test riders up here in the Haida Gwaii. Chinook Surfboards will certainly have some boards at the 'expression session' for people to ride.

Vimeo:Erik Hanson surfs & talks about the new Ocean Rodeo drysuit - Video:Mark Wyatt
The new product is a drysuit designed for surfing, the "Surf Dry".
It was a great experience shooting this. The surfer, Erik Hanson, as well as the owner were great to meet and work with. This was all shot within a two day window on Vancouver Island, and the weather was great, since it is usually raining.

As we all know a sunny day complimented by great surf is a rare combination to find along this coast during the winter months! So as a photographer it is great to only stop shooting once the batteries are all dead and memory cards full versus once the fingers, toes, and face are numb! Here are some photos from some of those sunny days along this Wetcoast. Enjoy
