British Columbian Pete Devries rules the waves at Pro Surf Competition

2009.11.16 — It might not seem like surfing weather to you, but for hard-core surfers it's a different story. In early November, local hero Peter Devries won the first Pro Surf Competition, held for the first time ever in Canada, in his home town of Tofino.

Devries is profiled in The Cedar Surf, Grant Shilling's popular and eye-popping story of Vancouver Island's love affair with big curls and surfboards. The Cedar Surf was published in 2003 as part of New Star's Transmontanus series.
