Leigh Stalker catching a nice one
It was one of those perfect situations for great waves just south of Campbell River at Storey's Beach. A long and quite intense April southeaster with winds that had been blowing 25-35 knots all day along with lots of rain and fast moving grey cloud.
Then as luck would have it, the wind suddenly dropped off just as we were all off work and the sky began to clear. And the small group of us who are really active in the famed Storey's Beach Surf Club headed straight for the home Beach.
Gary and Doug had got an earlier start and were doing a downwinder on their surf skis, but Leigh and I were on our paddleboards along with a small group of more traditional surfers.
Darcy would have been there but he and Darlene were off wave-hunting in Belize and Costa Rica.
