The stretch of beach between Tofino and Ucluelet, two surf towns on the west coast of Vancouver Island, is a beautiful yet savage landscape, evoking memories of 4mm wetsuits, drumming rain, and the strong smell of cedar. Despite the cohesion that surf culture lends to the area (e.g. everyone is wearing Vans skate shoes), the sport is essentially solitary, and there are lots of lonely moments bobbing out on cold water.
