This is the view from Nico Manos' living room. I can¹t remember the extant number of waves that Nico can see from his house, but I think it's between 50 and 60.
Sea smoke forms when very cold air moves over warmer water. This day, the water was about 33 degrees and the air was 1. This is Logan Landry braving it.
This waved looked really good, but it was so cold that I think the walk might have killed all circulation.
When we get swell, there are so many good waves that break. It can be hard to leave. Here's Logan Landry, spinning close to home.
This was one of the best mistakes I ever made. I was out of position and had water on my port, but I love the way this turned out.
Canada has one of the most most interesting coastlines in the all world. Sometimes the only way to fully take it all in is from the air.
He lived in a garage. Scotty Sherin, a Canadian through and through, was offered an internship at SURFING Magazine and wasn’t about to say no. So he drove drove his maple scented truck from Halifax to San Clemente and went 80mph the whole damn way. He brought his girlfriend and his dog and the three of them resided in a garage — not a finished, furnished grotto but a garage garage. Like, Tim Allen’s garage. The three happy Canucks lived in the toolshed and Scotty was the best intern we ever did see. Always smiling. Always Canadian. Eventually, his tenure was up and garage was vacated. Months later, Scotty sends us a gallery of these gems — and they’re more than worthy of printing and hanging in your garage. -Taylor Paul
