At only 7 years old, a few household chores allowed young Pete to ditch his bodyboard and buy his first surfboard. Back in those days, wetsuits didn’t do a great job, so he could only surf in the summer. Then this little guy from Tofino, Vancouver grew up and evolved at an international level. These days, he’s more commonly found wearing boardshorts and surfing the most beautiful waves in the world, but he is always happy to come home. Addicted to the feeling of gliding on a wave, rain or shine, you’ll always find him in the water.
Watch as Pete Devries unveils his best surfing in dreamy, cold Canadian conditions.
