Peter Devries WINS O’Neill Cold Water Classic

It’s not very often you witness a hero born, but today local surfer Peter Devries, of Tofino, won Canada’s first major surf competition in grand style.

Congratulations Peter, and sincere thanks to all who participated – it was interesting to see surfers contending with water much colder than they’ve used to.
Cold water surfing is a challenging sport, and it was a pleasure to watch the international surfing pros display their talents here in Canada’s surf capitol.

The O’Neill Cold Water Classic event is a really big deal for the Canadian surf scene and a total validation of local surf culture.
