Carpool if possible and respect the parking bylaws please.
TIME - The contest will start at 9 am sharp.
WEATHER - We will have some tenting, but the kids will most likely be in their wetsuits most of the day, so wind-breaking layers and toques are a great idea for between heats. Think wool and rain gear if its raining. This is Tofino, please remember to bring clothing for all weather - don’t forget the sunscreen.
WATER & FOOD - We will have food sales at the beach, provided by Wildside Grill. We will also have some water, but please bring full bottles for your family! Come prepared for a full, fun day at the beach!
SAFETY - If any parents would like to be in the water with the kids, please bring your wetsuits. For the expression session, bodyboards, bodysurfing, tandem, shortboard, longboard, anything goes and go out with your kids !!! We ask that for the competitive divisions parents don’t push their kids into waves, but are welcome to be out past the break for safety.
TENTATIVE SCHEDULE - Tentative schedule will be posted today. Please note that these times can change with short notice!!!
