North of Nowhere
A Lonely Paradise / Finding solace, and surf, on Vancouver Island.
Located in British Columbia on Canada’s southern west coast, Vancouver Island is the largest Pacific island east of New Zealand. Perhaps the most well-known spot along the western coast of the island is Tofino. A small surf town and popular summertime tourist destination. We traveled to this rugged and remote stretch of coastline with professional standup paddlers and Starboard team riders Zane Schweitzer and Sean Poynter. The crew also included Allan Gornall, Maris MacDonald and Stuart Robinson, three area locals who offered to serve as our guides for the trip.

Aside from photographing numerous covers and feature stories, we also designed SUP magazine’s logo – pretty cool, huh?
