The Surfers of Tofino, Canada

Published by MJR on February 22nd, 2011 in Essay, Film, Photos | 1 Comment »
TOFINO, Vancouver Island, is an elemental place. Carpeted with dense rain forests and inhabited by grizzlies, the island sits slap-bang in the path of the Pacific Ring of Fire – a series of oceanic trenches and volcanic belts that terrorize coastlines around the Pacific Rim. It’s here, amongst the fog and humidity – immortalized in John Carpenter’s 1980 horror The Fog – that the O’Neill Cold Water Classic stops for the fourth time on its cryogenic cruise.  We sent Brooklyn-based photojournalist Mustafah Abdulaziz on a gonzo assignment, as part of our year-long creative brief, to capture the gnarly comp from the inside out. - HUCK MAGAZINE #024 [download]
