The forth and penultimate stop of the O’Neill Cold Water Classic 2010 brings the series to the remote town of Tofino, Canada. The little fishing village is located on the stunning West Coast of Vancouver Island and is considered one of the best surfing spots in Canada.
Tofino is a gem secluded in the province of British Columbia, Canada. At its doorstep is the Clayoquot Sound region, a world UNESCO biosphere reserve.
They are right on the open Pacific Ocean, so when the surf comes in, it’s coming unchecked from hundreds of miles away. There was a 100 ft swell recorded off the North Coast of Vancouver Island, so when the storms hit here, they really got battered.
Surfing at the West coast of Vancouver Island is challenging, you do have to be dedicated to surf there. Due to the hard weather conditions Canadian surfers are as tough as you can get. They even surf in full-on snow!
