The West Coast of Vancouver Island is home to more than a dozen world-class surf breaks, exceptional dining, Indigenous culture and the ability to get back to nature. Communities including Port Alberni, Ucluelet, Tofino and the coast line of the Pacific Rim National Park, are home to many experiences that will leave you in a state of 'wow.' For those looking for a truly Canadian surf getaway, you will be happy to year you can ride some waves of joy any time of the year (yes, this can include a surf and ski safari if you pair it with Mount Washington).
Enjoy this ZenSeekers’ photo essay and get stoked to hit the coast.

A full preview of the story about the festival will be published in early 2018 on FestivalSeekers, but for now, here’s a few cool anecdotes and tips for anyone looking to hit #CanadasSurfHwy.
