Presentations

 The Science of Waves
Loon - upstairs Fri 6:30pm-7:15pm 

Have you ever wondered why wave fronts end up parallel to the beach? How do shoals create larger waves? Why do waves bend around obstacles? Understanding waves will help you manage the surf zone and make you a better paddler, whether you want to avoid a pounding or to catch the ride of your life. Understanding waves will bolster your confidence on the water and deepen your appreciation of the world around you.



 The Wild Coast: Circumnavigating Vancouver Island
Bear - upstairs Sat 3:30pm-4:15pm 

From the tide races of the inside passages to surf and swell on the outer coast, Vancouver Island is surrounded by dynamic waters. Hear Greg share lessons learned from a 55-day, solo circumnavigation of Vancouver Island. Whether you are interested in paddling a short protected section or planning your own expedition, Vancouver Island is a place of rugged beauty and amazing wildlife. It is a wilderness adventure waiting for you.
