I’ve put Tofino on the back burner for several years. It had been on my top destination list for years and always wanted to explore this amazing Canadian landscape. Lets be honest, this is the best surfing wave that Canada has to offer! The focus on this trip was to foil surf some new LF foil wings & boards… Tofino has proven to be foil surfing heaven!
Tofino is a small district on Vancouver Island, off Canada’s west coast. It sprawls on a peninsula within Clayoquot Sound, characterised by wild natural scenery including lakes, inlets and ancient rainforest. Sandy beaches with year-round surfing facilities include Cox Bay, Chesterman Beach and popular Long Beach, part of the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. The relaxed town of Tofino sits on the peninsula’s tip.
Today we took my friend Ronald’s plane and flew from Montreal to the Magdalen’s Islands for a quick 3 days trip…
I had a new kite to test (SOLO V4 9m). When we landed the wind was already blowing 25-30 knots, therefor we headed straight to the beach for a quick onshore wave session.
The Magdalen Islands are an amazing small archipelago in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence with a land area of 205.53 square kilometres.
Though closer to Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia, the islands are part of the Canadian province of Quebec. I’ve been traveling to the Magdalen’s since my young windsurfing days…
Three years ago, we setup the Liquid Force summer photoshoot in the Magdalen’s, it was amazing. Having pros Brandon Scheid, Sensi Graves there along with photographer Vincent Bergeron, the imagery came out rad!
