the waves are very fickle you have one chance out of ten to maybe have something almost good and the vibe is not really good really snobish trendy people

i agree, rather ill say whatever needs to be said in order for the crowdless kilometers of our coast to stay the same.

I’ve been to Tofino, I didn’t like the Guinness so I’m never going back!

Our coast has some of the most consistant swell in the world... Tofino and ukee both have great vibes aswell. And yeah that swell was refreshing.

I wouldn't go surf there. Never any waves, waters too cold, and Tofino has a bad vibe.

that's right... I went there, the surf was fickle and the locals ate my babies. No manners.

Tofino gets waves, and the vibe is great!
