Skook News

On tOp of the WORLD




Where to begin? This year has been one endless skook session! Each day is remembered by which paddlers showed up, what crazy sweet steepness the wave brought, and of course by pictures and footy! We've had everything from incredible tides all to ourselves, to packed days being forced to surf the meaty pile for a ride, even a few days when the druman had to work and i had not a sole to surf with... that was the day the seals showed up... check it out:










this is me!
I hear a pod of dolphins are still up the inlet but no sign of them at skooks yet. Here are some pics from the last while - its been fabulous!!

PS. the logging issues are far from over in the skookumchuck area. The Friends of Egmont have expressed much gratitude to all the kayakers who sent word of their concerns.


The fight continues! On the Friends of Egmont website there are a list of Brisith Columbian government contacts that you can email your thoughts/concerns to. The more people that fight for the trees the better chance that they will stay standing!!
