Tofino ‘s weather reared it’s ugly head for our visitors as they were greeted with a wild storm upon their arrival. The O’Neill Cold Water Classic did not kick off on it’s first scheduled day as the tides were extreme and so were the rains and the winds. Surfers from all over the world are having their limits pushed, weather-wise, in The West Coast’s extreme climate. The competition commenced yesterday with warm and sunny weather—a brief break from the storm—the town woke up to more rain and more wind this morning. Participants and spectators remain stoked though. Crowds have flocked to North Chestermans Beach to check out the action and support their favorite surfers.
