Canada West Paddle Surf Fest 2005

Tim & Dave with Canoe








Well it has been a busy past few weeks. Driving down to pick up my playboat near Seattle in my little car, which I was a bit nervous about, though some how it came through, after finishing up in Whistler. Visiting with one of my sisters in Vancouver. Then back to Vancouver Island where I worked for a friend to frame up a 4000sq foot house for a couple of weeks.
This coming week, I am off back down to Honduras for a few months to hang out at Omega Tours, see company links.
This past weekend, however was 4th year that the Vancouver Island Whitewater Paddling society has hosted the surf festival out in Cox Bay, near Tofino on the island's west coast. You can check out more info/photos of the event at www.surfkayak.org or at www.waynebarson.com. This year there were around 62 competitors in a number of different events. A few people even took out single and double open canoes into the surf which equaled quite a few swims. The day ended off in Tofino with a dinner, prize giving, slide shows, a raffle and a good band from Nanaimo. A good chance to catch up with friends from all over. If you are in the area next year it is worth checking out for sure.
