All the highlights from Day 1 in Canada. Conditions come together as the Canadians shine. Whilst the weather on the first day of the Ou2;019Neill Cold Water Classic Canada turned bleak and grey, the surf conditions - as well as the surfing on display in Tofino - were anything but.
In a part of the world more famous for its snow than its surf, the waves came good with a solid two meter swell and offshore winds at Cox Bay, Tofino, on the west coast of Vancouver Island. It was local surfer Peter Devries who took centre stage with a spectacular aerial display on his local beach break.
