A Tofino Weekend

This past weekend, the Coast Mountain Culture crew headed to Tofino to take in some sun, surf and all the Monsterous energy of the Rip Curl Pro, formerly known as the Stew.

Congrats to Pete Devries for his win in the Men’s Pro category, and Leah Oke for the women’s. Both locals. Both good people. Both dealing with challenging surf conditions to say the least.

Thanks to Tofino Inlet Cottages and especially Tourism Tofino for the help in finding an incredible place right on the water.
