If you don't have your inflatable SUP with you Tofino Paddle Surf, Surf Club @ Long Beach Resort (Cox Bay), and T'ashii Paddle School @ Jammie's Rainforest Inn all rent wave SUP's.

That's great. Small, everywhere must've been small.

Florencia-Wickanninish-LongBeach-CoxBay-North/SouthChesterman-Wickaninnish resort.

May have to read the swell, and bounce around Chestermann ... may have to seat for 5 minutes and see the beach/breaks ... at least you are having fun. My time there is next week.

Looking forward to Wickanninish bay (in the afternoon and choosing a break).

In hawaii I saw a few guys standing up on longboards, barely floating, light feet, centered and waiting for waves. It takes practice ... a few days, and without giving up it may work.

Thanks for the tips.

Luckily there is a strong SE coming through today so I can let the wind do the work.

Weather is miserable though.

Saturna has been gusting over 30 knots for the last 2 hours and Boundary Bay is gusting to 19 knots. Waves at GB's Beach in PR?

24-31 saturna at 10am (first reading over 20 knots).
Sandy shores: 15-20 knots.


it's missing the 35 knot peak to make decent waves. Glad there are cameras, sensors; nice to know before driving.

After seeing Kd surf 8-10ft waves at incinerator rock (probably the biggest surf you can get at Tofino) I must admit proper longboarding takes a lot of skill.
So let's find a good longboarding video...
