Surfing in Canada is like a trip back in time. Surfing is reserved for a hardy crew who are willing to put up with endless ice cream headaches, numb toes, and the willingness to put in the time to find the spots on their own, and the conditions they work in. It isn’t laid out on a platter for you. You got to work to be a surfer here.

This ethic, and the isolation, suits Canada’s best-known surfer and self-proclaimed happy recluse, Pete Devries just fine. Here, outdoor brand Arc’teryx joins Pete, and his long-time friend, photographer and collaborator, Jeremy Koreski, as they hunt down a session at a favourite wave and deliver a good insight into Pete along the way.
