You know, the reason I came out to Tofino was because of one thing: Fear. Fear of being on dark open waters, and a fear of capsizing and being unable to recover.
Putting yourself in a pure zone of discomfort enables you to discover what you're truly capable of and this is why I'm here. At the TRAK Kayak Surf Skills Progression Camp we've been learning proper technique, rolling, and how to surf the ocean on a kayak. Going from complete discomfort in a kayak to feeling like the boat is an extension of my body is something I wouldn't trade for the world. I now know how to become one with the wave. I can effectively harness the forces of water. My fears have been dispelled and to me, this is living life unleashed.
