Did You Know Vancouver Island is a Giant Piece of Swiss Cheese?

I’ve experienced a lot in my life, granted, not as much as many other people, but I’d like to think I’ve had some good times and fun experiences. After surfing for the first, second, and even third time, I never came out of the water thinking; OMFG, that was so […]
