Summer is in full swing. This week I’ll take you away with me into the land of powerful, right-breaking waves, but also afternoons full of bliss and laughter. Ready for a Thrill? Let’s get to Playa del Confital!
The distinctive thing about secret spots is…well – that they are a secret. And everybody who knows about a secret spot usually wants it to stay that way. On the other hand, a secret spot is only fun when you can share it with your friends -these places feel just too beautiful and magical to keep them to yourself. Raft Cove absolutely is all of the above. So first of all, I’ll do my best to add to the kind of repellent anti-PR that’s out there about the North of Vancouver Island, Port Hardy, Cape Scott Provincial Park and especially Raft Cove: Awful long drive up there, the worst road conditions everrrr! And the locals! Bad company, so unfriendly. Oh, and gazillions of bugs, dangerous, wild animals and absolutely nothing to do. Nothing! Raft Cove just sucks. Don’t go there!
Winter’s rapping at our doors, the days are getting even shorter and snow and ice greet us in the mornings. Summer feels like an eternity away. No wonder we start dreaming about past adventures full of sunshine, heat and ocean. My summer dreams of course, are mostly about surfing, but also about lazy days at the beach, hanging out with friends and sharing water melons for lunch break. To get me going through the darkest time of the year, I’ll write about my most recent surf spot discoveries in Europe: Where to surf in Gran Canaria!
