Vacay.ca Recommends Tofino Surfing Stays
Vacay.ca Western Canada Sports Editor Miguel Strother chronicled how to surf, ski and golf all on the same day in the Tofino area.
In his two-part article published earlier this year, Strother writes: “Now I am not much of a surfer, despite many years in the water. But there are few feelings I find more fulfilling than getting past the breakwater and bobbing in the swell and trying to harness the power of the ocean. Suspended there in the cold Pacific, soaking in the mountains, beach and the unthinkable ghostly cedar structures, strapped to the ragged rocks around Tofino, is definitely enough to bring anybody to life. That and the conversation and instruction of a guide seasoned in this surf.”
