Pete Devries, Last Digs, Vancouver Island

"This session ended up being the last time we surfed this spot for the season," says lensman Marcus Paladino of this monochromatic capture of cold-water-warrior Pete Devries. "After a very productive winter and having this wave break more times this year than the last few combined, all good things must come to an end. Luckily Pete was able to surf it all by himself for a few hours before a handful of people paddled out." And what a way to go out, kicking the tail one more time under those towering alpine silhouettes behind.
