This fall was pretty outstanding on the West Coast of Canada. Instead of flying here, there and everywhere in planes, trains and helicopters, the boys decided to do some turns and tail blows right in our back yard.
Kooks 3 - FULL MOVIE A surf film for the rest of us.
It's groveling at an over surfed beach break. It's watching the buoy begging for a swell. It's wishing you had a boat, or trying to find friends that do. It's a crowded dawn patrol and forgetting your wetsuit outside last night. It's 7mm booties and mandatory gloves. It's taking off your hood and regretting it. It's chasing daylight and running to the beach. It's "too big there and too small here." It's laughing in the lineup. It's knowing that we are all Kooks...
Howdy CoastalBC community,
While digesting the wonderful Thanksgiving meal my brother's family prepared for us here in Victoria, I reflected on the usual morning of surf at JR. I wanted to share these pictures and thoughts as part of my giving thanks to our Vancouver Island surfing community.
I won't offer my any profound advice for anyone seeking nautical adventure as I am not experienced in such matters and may have made the same mistakes as these guys given the opportunity.
This accident reminded me that we are a tribe of water loving people. Fishermen, surfers (including sup, right?), kayakers, and other inhabitants of this land and sea are bound together, stewards of a precious resource. We have a responsibility to take care of this place we love and to care for those who share our bond with the sea. What I witnessed and was a part of this morning was a reminder of that. A special thanks to the leadership of the older surfer/sup'er who recognized early on that help was needed and galvanized action without being asked for help. In the end, nobody was injured and the environmental damage was minimized.
