Northwest Tour: Robby Naish, Dave Kalama and Michi Schweiger
One precious 40-foot Naish RV, one map, one GPS system, and a simple plan. Start at White Salmon, WA and head up the coast. Iu2;019m reminded of Captain Ron when he says, u2;01CIf we get lost, weu2;019ll just pull in somewheres and ask directions!u2;01D
So, with Robby driving, Dave sleeping and Michi smiling, the famous watermen headed on a true adventure up the Northwest coast. The boys were about to become one with nature and get closer to wildlife than they had ever imagined. Eagles and seals and bears u2;01COh Myu2;01D !
u2;01CThe idea was to head straight out to the Washington state coast and turn right and see what we could find,u2;01D Robby Naish said, u2;01Cand we went all the way up to Canada and across to Tofino u2;013 so basically, in a week we drove 2,600 miles.u2;01D
The boys brought all their water toys, prepared for whatever the environment and conditions had in store. Highlights were the beautiful wilderness of La Push, WA, the amazing surf town of Tofino, Canada and paddling with black bears.
u2;01CWhen you see them play around on the beach, they turn over rocks that are maybe 70 pounds just with one paw u2;013 and there is a crab, and they crunch it like chips!u2;01D Michi Schweiger says excitedly.
The trip was one for the books, and luckily for the rest of us caught on tape! Dave Kalama says, u2;01CI would highly recommend that kind of a surf trip for everybody at some point in your surf career.u2;01D
