The Rip Curl Pro Tofino: Well, i have been involved with this event for the past few years.It seems that whenever the old stew,now Rip Curl Pro is close people get really excited to be part of it and to go surfing. It is a lot of work and it is also great to see Rip Curl and co - sponsors investing in a core and super fun event.There is a lot behind scenes that people dont know,and to make this event happen a lot of effort from different people is needed. Anyway, i havent done any postings lately and in the past few years a lot happened in my life. My son Julian just turned four, i became a paramedic in Canada,the waters edge project is up and running in Barra de la Cruz Mexico(please check www.watersedgeproject.org) and much more. Life goes fast and one more event is happening this weekend.I did coach and organized many surfing events in the past,but this one in Tofino is a different one.People gather together to cheer for their friends ,local heros and also to have a big party at the beach. The swell is looking quite fun and i am hoping that the waves will make my job as a head judge and contest director an easier one.
